Gamine to Visit Quality Road in 2022

Michael Lund Petersen's Gamine (Into Mischief) has been booked to Lane's End stallion Quality Road for 2022, bloodstock agent Donato Lanni confirmed Sunday.

“We had a meeting with Michael to decided what to do and we all agreed that Quality Road was the right horse to start off her broodmare career,” Lanni said. “You really can't go wrong with Quality Road–he's a very good sire.”

Acquired for $1.8 million at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale, Gamine won nine of 11 starts, including the 2020 GI Breeders' Cup F/M Sprint, GI Acorn S. and GI Test S. and was named the year's Eclipse champion female sprinter.

In 2021, she added wins in the GI Derby City Distaff and GI Ketel One Ballerina S. and she concluded her career with a third-place finish in the Breeders' Cup F/M Sprint. She is once again an Eclipse award finalist as top female sprinter.

Gamine's retirement was announced in early January and the 5-year-old mare currently resides at Hill 'n' Dale at Xalapa Farm in Paris, Kentucky.

“She's happy,” Lanni said. “She's turned out with some fillies, she's really happy to have some buddies now at Xalapa. She's enjoying retirement.”

Asked if the champion might be offered at auction next fall, Lanni said, “We just want to get her bred, get her pregnant. We're not even thinking about that right now.”
