Repole Stable, St. Elias Stable, and Woodford Racing LLC partner-up on this $500,000 KEESEP procurement in PATOU ROAD (Quality Road), who will be getting a late start to the races for his powerhouse connections. In the barn of Pletcher, who has had a notably great year with the ownership group, the colt is out of Patou (Ghostzapper), herself a half-sister to GSW Moulin de Mougin (Curlin)–the dam of GSP Spicer (Quality Road); GISP Vionnet (Street Sense)–dam of MG1SW Roaring Lion (Kitten's Joy); GSP Bronson (Medaglia d'Oro); MSW Alexis Tangier (Tiznow); and is a full-sister to GSW Schiaparelli (Ghostzapper). The second dam Cambiocorsa (Avenue of Flags) is the full-sister to Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (still listed in 2009) hero California Flag. This is the extended female family of GI Preakness S. winner Rombauer (Twirling Candy). Patou Road has been making appearances on the work tab in a steady fashion, and the morning line has him listed at 8-1 for this unveiling. TJCIS PPs
