Jace’s Road (c, 2, Quality Road–Out Post, by Silver Deputy), a $510,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, put on a show at Ellis Park Saturday afternoon en route to ‘TDN Rising Star’ honors.

The bay worked four furlongs in :48 2/5 (2/90) at Brad Cox’s Churchill Downs base July 29 and was hammered down to 7-5 favoritism while drawn on the outside in post nine against this deep-looking bunch.

He chased on the outside in third though an opening quarter in :22.47, loomed boldly under confident handling while three-wide on the turn for home and took off impressively down the stretch under wraps to win going away by 6 1/4 lengths. Second-time starter Retained (Bayern) was second.

This is the 13th ‘Rising Star’ for Quality Road.

After producing a filly by Curlin this year, the winner’s dam was bred back to Quality Road.

3rd-Ellis, $60,170, Msw8-6, 2yo, 6f, 1:09.80, ft, 6 1/4 lengths.
