Cherry Lodge, a Grade 1-placed stakes winner, has been retired from racing, and will visit fast-rising sire Quality Road for her first mating later this year.

The announcement was made via the Twitter account of Maggie Sweet, chief operating officer of trainer Todd Pletcher's stable. The 5-year-old Bernardini mare raced for Antony Beck's Gainesway Stable.

Cherry Lodge retired with four wins in 10 career starts, for earnings of $322,422, highlighted by a victory in her final race, the Ladies' Turf Sprint Stakes on Jan. 26 at Gulfstream Park. She finished third in the same race last year, adding to a black type resume that also included a second in the G3 Matron Stakes and a third in the G1 Spinaway Stakes.

Bred in Kentucky by Mrs. William L. Currin, Cherry Lodge is out of the placed Carson City mare Wilshewed, a notable producer whose foals also include G1 winner Stormello, G2 winner My Best Brother, and G3 winner Gala Award.

Cherry Lodge sold to Gainesway for $450,000 at the 2015 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Quality Road stands at Lane's End in Versailles, Ky., for an advertised fee of $150,000.
