Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: City Of Light Shines For Sire Quality Road

City of Light made his stakes debut a winning one, going wire-to-wire to capture the G1 Malibu Stakes by two lengths at Santa Anita. The 3-year-old Mike McCarthy trainee, who was unraced as a juvenile, has never finished worse than second in five career starts.

City of Light became the eleventh individual graded stakes winner this year for his sire, Quality Road, whose offspring have captured a total of 13 graded stakes wins. As a result, Quality Road moves into first place on this week’s American Graded Stakes Standings.

Quality Road has had an outstanding year in 2017. Not only has the stallion sired 11 graded stakes winners, but three of them are Grade 1 winners – Abel Tasman (G1 Kentucky Oaks, G1 Acorn, G1 Coaching Club American Oaks), Caledonia Road (G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies) and City of Light. Both Abel Tasman and Caledonia Road are likely to earn Eclipse Award honors this year.

In addition to his three G1 winners, Quality Road is the sire of High Ridge Road (G2 Barbara Fritchie), Illuminant (G2 Monrovia), Salty (G2 Gulfstream Park Oaks), Road to Victory (G2 Golden Rod), Cowboy Culture (G3 Arlington Classic), Guest Suite (G3 LeComte), Spring Quality (G3 Red Smith) and Long Haul Bay (G3 Bay Shore).
