Nashville

Fee: TBD
Speightstown - Veronique,
by
Mizzen Mast, 2017 Bay

Brilliance Personified

From the first time he  set foot on the racetrack, Nashville’s brilliance was on display. He won his first three starts by a combined 24 3/4 lengths and set Keeneland’s six-furlong track record on Breeders’ Cup day. The son of WinStar’s champion sire Speightstown went on to record the fastest six-furlong time in over two years at Fair Grounds, earning yet another triple-digit Beyer Speed Figure.

Destined to carry on Speightown’s legacy as a sire of sires, Nashville’s female family brings a strong dose of stamina through his third dam Set Them Free, the dam of Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Giacomo and multiple Grade 1 winner Tiago. With his documented precocity, and Speightstown’s renowned ability to sire top-class horses at all distances and on both turf and dirt, Nashville is uniquely poised to put his stamp on his offspring.
