Wild For Love was a $130,000 2-year-old in-training purchase at OBS, and she went on to win at least one race each year from 2- through 5-years-old, including the 2015 Maryland Million Distaff Starter Handicap going one mile by almost nine lengths. Her other victories came at five-and-one-half and six furlongs, on dirt and all-weather.
