Not This Time racked up his second stakes winner of the day Saturday when Ain't Life Grand won the $91,000 Iowa Cradle S. at Prairie Meadows by a widening 2 3/4-lengths (WATCH RACE).

The 2-year-old colt won the Radke Memorial S. by 10 3/4-lengths in his prior start and is now 3-0-1 in four starts and has earned $129,030 for owner/breeder RPM Thoroughbreds.

Not This Time's strong Saturday results also included Last Leaf scoring her first stakes win in Gulfstream's Hollywood Beach S., the 2-year-old colt Howling Time scoring an impressive maiden special weight win at Churchill Downs, and Time Goes On finishing second in the Iowa Breeders' Derby. Not This Time is the leading Second-Crop sire by stakes winners, stakes horses, graded winners, and progeny earnings.

Ain't Life Grand controlled the pace from the outset on Saturday night. He was pressed through a half-mile by Kwai Chang, then shook free to open up by three lengths at the top of the stretch and won handily over Finish Up. 

The winner is the first foal out of Cat d'Oro, an unraced daughter of Medaglia d'Oro. Her dam Cat Moves won the Prioress S. (G1).
