The son of Quality Road broke his maiden at two at Santa Anita and won his first graded stakes, the Grade 3 El Camino Real Derby, at three. He additionally captured the Grade 2 Twilight Derby at Santa Anita, following up with a third-place finish in the Grade 1 Hollywood Derby later that year.

Frank Conversation’s dam, Rushen Heat, is a full-sister to Grade 1 stakes winner and millionaire Unusual Suspect and Grade 1 stakes winner Golden Doc A.

“Quality Road is on fire right now, and we think Frank Conversation provides a great opportunity to breed to that sire line in New York,” said Rockridge owner and director, Lere Visagie. “We are syndicating the horse and will also offer lifetime breeding rights as options to breeders.”
