September 2015

From the last crop of the prolific sire, Harlan’s Holiday, comes a colt from a champion producing family.

Winner of the Florida Derby (gr. I), Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) and Donn Handicap (gr. I), Harlan’s Holiday is sire of 63 stakes winners, 30 graded stakes winners, including Champion Two-Year-Old Shanghai Bobby, grade one winners and grade one sires Into Mischief and Majesticperfection, and grade one winner Pretty Girl.

This son of Harlan’s Holiday is the third foal of Quality Play, a young three-quarters sister to Marsh Side, a winner of over $2,360,000, including the Manhattan Handicap (gr. I), Canadian International Stakes (gr. 1) and Northern Dancer Turf Stakes (gr. I). Quality Play’s second foal, Special Select, a two-year-old of 2015, recently led from start-to-finish to make a winning racecourse debut.

Quality Play is out of the accomplished and well-related Colonial Play. Winner of the Orchid Handicap (gr. II), Colonial Play is a sister to Champion Two-Year-Old Filly Pleasant Stage, and to graded stakes winner Stage Colony. Colonial Play is also a sister to Solar Colony, the dam of stakes winner Reform Act, and granddam of stakes winners Lunar Victory, The Tea Cups and Zayda, and to Meteor Colony, the dam of grade one winner Changeintheweather – a three-quarters brother to the dam of this colt – and granddam of stakes winner Another World.

Meteor Storm, the granddam of Quality Play, is a half-sister to grade one winning sprinter A Phenomenon, and to Spinaway Stakes (gr. I) victress Seattle Meteor, to the granddam of Triple Bend Handicap (gr. I) scorer Declassify, and to the third dam of the 2015 Harlan’s Holiday line stakes winner Perfect Style.

This colt is a product of the Harlan’s Holiday/Gone West cross, which has also produced graded stakes winning millionaire Willcox Inn, graded stakes winner Fantastic Style, and stakes winner Hi Holiday.
