Circular Quay Joins Journeyman Roster on TrueNicks

The newly retired Circular Quay (TrueNicks,SRO) is the latest stallion to join the burgeoning TrueNicks roster.

The 5-year-old son of Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Thunder Gulch had classic aspirations of his own after an impressive victory in the 2007 Louisiana Derby (gr. II). The previous season he was a contender for an Eclipse Award with wins in the Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) and Bashford Manor (gr. III), and runner-up finishes in both the Breeders' Futurity (gr. I) and Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I).

Circular Quay, who is out of the grade I-winning Belong to Me mare Circle of Life, added the grade II New Orleans Handicap to his resume this season and retires with earnings in excess of $1.5 million.

He enters stud at Brent Fernung's Journeyman Stud near Ocala, Fla., to stand alongside Bwana Charlie (TrueNicks,SRO) , Cashel Castle (TrueNicks,SRO) , Exclusive Quality (TrueNicks,SRO) , Mass Media (TrueNicks,SRO) , Saint Anddan (TrueNicks,SRO) , and Wildcat Heir (TrueNicks,SRO) . Breeders also have access to complimentary TrueNicks reports for these stallions courtesy of Journeyman.

This is the problem with the industry today, budding stars raced lightly and then retired before they reach their full potential.
