Great Notion

Dazzling juveniles, sensational sprinters and a bounty of winners have become the trademark for Great Notion!

His son HAVELOCK proved one of the best turf sprinters in the nation while earning $655,752 and recording five graded stakes wins, including the Gr. 2 Play the King S. and two runnings of the Gr. 3 Woodford S. His daughter Jazzy Idea was a five-time stakes winner who set two course records, one while defeating older males in 1:07.29 for 6 furlongs on the turf in the Laurel Dash. Coming off his best year ever in 2016, Great Notion’s stakes winners included two-time Maryland Million Turf winner Phlash Phelps and 3-year-old fillies GREAT SOUL and JACKY’S NOTION.

He is the sire of 25 stakes horses from 166 starters (15 percent) and 76% of his lifetime starters are winners. Maryland’s 2016 leading 2-year-old sire, his runners included Anna’s Bandit, stakes-placed in the $200,000 Astoria at Belmont and $100,000 Debutante at Churchill Downs in three starts. Himself a dazzling sprinter, Great Notion was undefeated at 2 and Gr. 1-placed at 3.
