Quality Road, Candy Ride Lead Lane’s End 2021 Stallion Roster

Lane’s End in Versailles, Ky., has released the advertised fees for its 2021 stallion roster, led by top commercial sire Quality Road.

Like many of the major Kentucky stallion operations, Lane’s End has decreased its stud fees nearly across the board to account for the uncertain economy both inside and outside the Thoroughbred industry.

The 2021 roster is led by elite commercial sire Quality Road, who will stand for $150,000. The 14-year-old son of Elusive Quality’s runners have been led this year by Grade 2 winners Dunbar Road and Captain Scotty, along with Grade 3 winner Bellafina and Belmont Stakes runner-up Dr Post.

Quality Road’s yearlings have posted an average sale price of $354,947 in 2020.

Veteran sire Candy Ride joins Quality Road at the top of this year’s Lane’s End roster, standing for $75,000.

A 21-year-old son of Ride the Rails, Candy Ride has seen his banner carried this year by multiple Grade 1 winner Vekoma, Grade 2 winner Rideforthecause, and multiple Grade 1-placed Ollie’s Candy.

Lane’s End will add three rookie stallions to its roster in 2021, along with hot sire Daredevil, who returns stateside from Turkey.

Game Winner, the champion 2-year-old of 2018, will stand for an initial fee of $30,000. The 4-year-old Candy Ride colt went undefeated during his juvenile season, capped off by an Eclipse-clinching victory in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs.

Honor A. P. will enter stud for a fee of $15,000. A 3-year-old from the first crop of fellow Lane’s End resident Honor Code, Honor A. P.’s on-track career was highlighted by a victory in the G1 Santa Anita Derby.

Rounding out the trio of newcomers is Grade 1 winner Gift Box, who will stand for $10,000. The 7-year-old Twirling Candy horse retired with earnings in excess of $1.1 million, with wins in the G1 Santa Anita Handicap, and two editions of the G2 San Antonio Stakes.

Daredevil joins the Lane’s End roster in 2021 after standing the previous season in Turkey. The 8-year-old More Than Ready horse has been represented this year by Preakness Stakes winner Swiss Skydiver and Kentucky Oaks winner Shedaresthedevil, and the two star fillies filled out the Oaks exacta. Daredevil will stand for $25,000 as property of the Turkish Jockey Club.
