6th-SA, $65K, Msw, 4-5yo, 7f, 5:59 p.m. ET
At $1.15 million as the ninth highest price taken during Keeneland's 2021 September Sale, Mayberry Farm signed the ticket on behalf of Lee and Susan Searing's CRK Stable to acquire THEISMANN (Quality Road). Sent to John Shirreffs, the colt initially began to drill late in his juvenile year, but was given time by the veteran conditioner when he had several minor setbacks as a 3-year-old.

Ready to fire as an 8-1 shot on the morning-line, the bay was bred by Dixiana and is the first foal out of GSP Brielle's Appeal (English Channel). Unraced second dam Court of Appeal (Deputy Minister) is responsible for MGSW/MGISP Authenticity (Quiet American), who produced GI Arkansas Derby and GI Runhappy Malibu S. victor Charlatan (Spieghtstown).
