Quality Road won four Grade 1 races for owner-breeder Ned Evans


Keeneland dispersal set for Ned Evans estate

THE dispersal of breeding stock owned by the late Ned Evans, breeder of Quality Road, will be dispersed at Keeneland's September Yearling and November Breeding Stock Sales.

Lane's End Farm will act as agent for the complete dispersal of around 250 yearlings, weanlings, broodmares and racing stock, with the exception of Quality Road, who will continue to stand at Lane's End.

Quality Road won four times at the top level, including the Florida Derby and most recently in the Woodward Stakes. The five-year-old son of Elusive Quality stands his first season at stud in 2011 at $35,000.

"Ned was an extraordinary sportsman who had such a wonderful passion for this game," said Keeneland president and CEO Nick Nicholson.

"He truly loved his horses, and took immense pride in the success of his breeding and racing program - personally planning the matings and racing his homebreds. Ned was a great friend to Keeneland and a tremendous champion of ourindustry."
