Hasty Road (1951–1978) was an American thoroughbred racehorse best remembered for winning the 1954 Preakness Stakes and coming in a close second to Determine in the 1954 Kentucky Derby.[1] Hasty Road was a very large bay thoroughbred with a distinctive white blaze. He was sired by Roman, out of 1954 Broodmare of the Year Traffic Court, who also produced 1955 Woodward Stakes winner Traffic Judge.[1]

Raced by Allie Reuben under his Hasty House Farm colors, Hasty Road was trained by Harry Trotsek.

Hasty Road set a new track record at Churchill Downs for his Kentucky Derby qualifying trial, running eight furlongs in 1:35.0.[2]

Hasty Road was a successful broodmare sire, with several daughters producing stakes winners.

  • Broadway, 1961 Polly Drummond Stakes winner, dam of champion filly Queen of the Stage and sire Reviewer. Reviewer is best remembered as the sire of the great but ill-fated filly Ruffian.
  • Impetuous Lady, dam of 10 stakes winners
