Skyway Quinton, the four-year-old son of Real Desire, is now on a two-race win streak. The gelding scored his seventh win of 2019 in 12 starts at Yonkers with Mark MacDonald at the controls. It was his quickest mile of 2019 as he won in 1:52.0.
Owned by Sarah Conrad, Skyway Quinton was successful at both Harrah’s Hoosier Park and on the Indiana Sired Fair Circuit at two and three. He won in Indiana Sires Stakes action and also won the $20,000 Indiana Sired Fair Circuit Championship at the Indiana State Fair at the age of two. He took his career best time of 1:50.3 last year for the Conrads before he was sent to Travis Alexander on the East Coast, where he continues to rack up wins.
Skyway Quinton now has 18 wins in 53 career starts. His quickest mile was recorded in May when he dipped below the 1:50 time barrier, pacing his mile at The Meadowlands in 1:49.0. The Indiana sired gelding, who was bred by Midland Acres, Inc. of Ohio, was purchased by the Conrads for $9,500 from the Hoosier Classic Yearling Sale in 2016. He has now earned more than $173,000 in purses.
