Speedway Adds Some Quality

Bloodstock agent Marette Farrell, bidding on behalf of Peter Fluor and KC Weiner’s Speedway Stable, secured a colt by Quality Road for $525,000 early during Tuesday’s second session of the Keeneland September sale. The gray colt (hip 252), out of stakes winner Ghost Dancing (Silver Ghost), is a half-brother to Grade I winner Ascend (Candy Ride {Arg}) and to graded stakes placed Moro Tap (Tapit). He was bred and consigned by Arthur Hancock’s Stone Farm.

“We just thought he was extremely athletic, by an up-and-coming stallion, and bred by a master who has bred…how many Kentucky Derby winners? Three Kentucky Derby winners,” Farrell said. “So, it all made sense.”
