Multiple grade I winner and track record holder
Quality Road (TrueNicks,SRO) has joined TrueNicks in advance of the 2011 breeding season. Following his run in the next month's Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I), for which he is one of the favorites, Quality Road will retire to Lane's End Farm.
The son of Elusive Quality holds grade I wins in the Florida Derby, Donn Handicap, Met Mile, and Woodward Stakes. He has set two track records at Gulfstream for 9 furlongs, and clocked a new track record of 1:13.74 in the 6 1/2-furlong Amsterdam (gr. II) at Saratoga.
Quality Road was produced from the Strawberry Road mare Kobla, a full sister to 1997 Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I) winner and champion three-year-old filly Ajina. He traces to Myrtlewood in tail female, meaning that he belongs to the same 13-c family as Mr. Prospector.
Quality Road's stud fee will be announced at a later date.
