City Of Light to eventually join sire Quality Road at Lane's End Farm
Michael McCarthy inmate is a multiple Grade 1 winner
Multiple Grade 1 winner City Of Light will join his sire Quality Road at Lane's End Farm upon the conclusion of his racing career, Will Farish's operation announced on Friday.
"We are thrilled to have the best son by our top young stallion join our roster," Farish said. "City Of Light has a tremendous amount of speed from a fantastic female family, and is clearly the best son to date by one of the elite stallions in America, Quality Road."
Trained by Michael McCarthy and owned by William Warren, City Of Light captured the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes in his first try against stakes company in December, when he wired the field to win by two lengths. The bay colt then promptly annexed another score at the highest level in the Triple Bend Stakes in March.
Sold by Lane's End for $710,000 as a yearling at the 2015 Keeneland September Sale, City Of Light was bred in Kentucky by Ann Marie Farm. City of Light's speed can also be traced back to his damside.
He is out of the Dehere mare Paris Notion, and she is a three-parts sister to Grade 1 winner Fabulously Fast, both out of Grade 1 winner Fabulous Notion.
"City Of Light is a very fast, sound, consistent horse," Bill Farish said. "He has continued to run at the highest level against top competition with Graded stakes victories ranging from seven to nine furlongs. His sire and brilliance, coupled with his looks, makes him a very exciting prospect."
City Of Light is scheduled to make his next start in the Forego Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.
A stud fee will be announced upon retirement.
