Notional relocates to Rockin’ Z Ranch in Oklahoma


Grade 2 winner Notional has been relocated to Rockin’ Z Ranch in Beggs, Okla., for the 2014 breeding season, standing for an advertised fee of $2,000.

The 10-year-old son of In Excess previously stood at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, Ky. He is the sire of three crops of racing age, led by stakes winners Risky Call, Wargamer, and Venezuelan-bred Awesome Gem.

Notional won four of 12 starts during his racing career for earnings of $733,240. His biggest victories came in the Grade 2 San Rafael Stakes, as well as the Grade 3 Risen Star Stakes and Salvator Mile Handicap, and he finished second to Scat Daddy in the 2007 Florida Derby.

Bred in California by Vessels Stallion Farm, Notional is out of the winning French Deputy mare Truly Blessed, who is the dam of three winners from four foals to race. He is from the family of Argentine champion Lovellon.

Notional will stand as property of Dr. Robert Zoellner, owner of Rockin’ Z Ranch, and Clark Brewster.
