Moquest, Full Brother to Nyquist, to Stand in California

Moquest | Ron Mesaros

Moquest (Uncle Mo–Seeking Gabrielle, by Forestry), a full-brother to champion Nyquist, will stand the 2022 breeding season at Milky Way Farm in California. Moquest will stand for $4,500 LFSN. An injury during training prevented the $650,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase from making it to the races. Bred in Kentucky by Hinkle Farms, the 3-year-old will be supported in the breeding shed by his owners, EAS Alliance LLC.

Last year, Uncle Mo's sales yearlings averaged $270,915 including two yearlings that sold last year for $1.6-million and $1.1 million. His juveniles averaged $287,786, among them a $1.3 million purchase.

In 2021, Nyquist, who closed out the season as the second Leading Second-Crop Sire, was responsible for yearlings averaging $151,826, while his juveniles averaged $328,167, including the $2.6 million Fasig-Tipton March topper.

In addition to Nyquist, Seeking Gabrielle is also responsible for a colt by Tapit, that realized $2.6 million in the sales ring. To date, her progeny has sold for $5.4 million.
