High Time (1916-1937) was a chestnut thoroughbred born at the Wickliffe Stud in Kentucky. 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.[1]

High Time was best known for his career at stud. He was considered a source of speed and was named Leading US Sire in 1928. He also ranked in the top 20 on 12 other occasions.[2] His get included 1925 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.[3] 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.[4] 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, KY.[5]
