Signed, inscribed Lexington, dated 1929
Leading sire of 1928 and twice leading broodmare sire, High Time sired two-time Horse of the Year Sarazen and champion 2-year-old High Strung. His daughters produced champion 2-year-old filly Now What and top sire Eight Thirty. High Time, who won Aqueduct’s Hudson Stakes setting a five-furlong track record, was a hard horse to place at stud, owing to his intense inbreeding to Domino. High Time first stood at Elizabeth Daingereld’s Haylands Farm and was sold in its dispersal to Charles Fisher’s Dixiana Farm. High Time died at 21 in 1937 and is buried at Dixiana.
