Notional, a three-time graded stakes winner and runner-up in the 2007 Florida Derby (G1), has been relocated to stand the 2014 breeding season at Dr. Robert Zoellner’s Rockin’ Z Ranch in Beggs, Oklahoma. The son of In Excess (Ire) will stand for a $2,000 fee and joins a roster at Rockin’ Z that also includes Omega Code and Kennedy. Notional will stand as property of Zoellner and Clark Brewster.

As a 2-year-old, Notional broke his maiden at first asking at Oak Tree at Santa Anita and then finished third in the Hollywood Preview Stakes (G3). He kicked off his 3-year-old campaign with consecutive victories in the San Rafael Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita and Risen Star Stakes (G3) at Fair Grounds Race Course before finishing a game second in the $1 million Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park. He ran through his 4-year-old season and added a victory in the $300,000 Salvator Mile Handicap (G3) at Monmouth Park before retiring with a record of 12-4-1-2 and earnings of $733,240.

From two crops to race, Notional has sired 33 winners, three stakes winners, six stakes horses and the earners of $1.1 million. Among his stakes performers are Risky Call, winner of the Canadian Juvenile Stakes; Wargamer, winner of the Razorback Futurity at Harrah’s Louisiana Downs; Awesome Gem, a stakes winner in Venezuela; and Hopeful Notion and Lady Notional, both stakes-placed in Louisiana. He is also the sire of Malachite, an earner of $109,610 in five starts on the New York circuit.
