High Time (1916–1937) was a chestnut thoroughbred born at the Wickliffe Stud in Kentucky.

Race Career[edit]

At age two, he was sent to the track to race as a juvenile and won once in seven starts. His only victory came in the Hudson Stakes in record time (:58 2/5), and he also placed third in the Great American Stakes.[2]

Stud Career[edit]

High Time was best known for his career at stud. He was considered a source of speed and earned Leading United States Sire honors in 1928. He also ranked in the top 20 on 12 other occasions.[3] His get included 1925 American Horse of the Year Sarazen and 1928 Champion Two Year Old Colt High Strung. Over half of his 289 progeny won at the age of two.[4] High Time was also a two-time recipient of the Leading Broodmare Sire title in 1936 and 1940. He spent most of his stud career at Dixiana Farm.[5] High Time died in 1937 at the age of 21. He is buried in an unmarked grave on the grounds of Dixiana Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.[6]
