Quality Road Colt Brings $1.7 Million at Keeneland Thursday


Hip 886 | Keeneland

The Keeneland September sale continued to churn out million-dollar results into its fourth session Thursday when bloodstock agent Donato Lanni signed the ticket at $1.7 million to acquire a colt by Quality Road from the Nardelli Sales consignment on behalf of an undisclosed client. Mike Repole, sitting alongside bloodstock agent Jacob West and trainer Todd Pletcher, was underbidder on the yearling. Repole made a final bid of $1.65 million, but dramatically drew his hand across his neck after Lanni's $1.7-million bid, prompting Keeneland announcer Ryan Mahan to say, 'I think that's a no.' The bay, who is out of Act Now (Street Sense), was bred by Kim and Rodney Nardelli and William Werner and W.S. Farish. The mare was purchased by Springwood/Bill Werner for $150,000 at the 2020 Keeneland January sale.
