The love continues to grow!
NOT FOR LOVE, the top-ranked U.S. stallion standing outside of Kentucky for eight years consecutive years, has had progeny earnings in excess of $4 million for 10 years in a row, and he remains the region’s most prolific stakes sire with 21% stakes horses/starters during his career.
The first sire in history outside of Kentucky to reach the $6.4-million mark in progeny earnings, achieved in 2008, NOT FOR LOVE has sired over 70 stakes winners to date (an average of more than five per crop) and had 19 stakes horses in 2011. For his career, he has sired 82% starters/foals (through his crop of 2009), 81% winners/starters, with nearly $58 million in progeny earnings and average earnings/starter of $89,117!
NOT FOR LOVE has dominated the Maryland Million over the last decade, and in 2011 became the event’s most successful sire ever as his record-tying four winners pushed his Maryland Million wins total to 25! He got his third winner of the day’s richest race, the Maryland Million Classic, when EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH flew home to top a NOT FOR LOVE trifecta rounded out by CACTUS CHARLIE and NOT ABROAD.
NOT FOR LOVE has been making headlines since his first crop hit the sales ring, as the sire of a world record-equaling $2 million sales 2-year-old; his lifetime 2-year-old sales average (87 sold) is $116,828! His only juvenile in the 2012 Fasig-Tipton Florida Select 2-year-olds sale brought $150,000.
A full brother to champion RHYTHM, NOT FOR LOVE is a member of one of the most accomplished families in the stud book. His illustrious family includes Kentucky Derby-G1 winner SUPER SAVER!
