(2018 dark bay/brown mare by Shanghai Bobby out of Walk of Stars, by Street Sense)
Star of Shanghai comes from the highly productive and very active female family of Larry Johnson’s foundation mare Ran’s Chick (her 4th dam), through the stakes winner Special Kell (also ancestress of G3 winner and sire Street Magician) via Star Kell, the dam of multiple stakes winner and G2-placed Strike the Moon, of stakes-placed What Time It Is (in turn the dam of Maryland-bred champion Never Enough Time), and of Star of Shanghai’s stakes winning dam Walk of Stars (who also broke her maiden by more than 30(!) lengths).
In addition to Star of Shanghai, who broke her maiden as a 4YO going a mile on the all-weather at Presque Isle and was placed in 9 additional starts while earning $44,126 racing from 2YO through 5YO, Walk of Stars is the dam of the stakes-placed $200k earner Hollywood Walk, of the winner Starstreet (an $80,000 yearling), and a colt of 2021 by Constitution who sold for $600,000 to Repole & St. Elias Stables at the ’22 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. There is also a Maclean’s Music colt of ’22 to come, and Walk of Stars was mated to Jack Christopher for 2024.
Star of Shanghai will be bred for the first time in 2024, to the leading young Maryland stallion Blofeld.
