We recently negotiated the purchase of the eight-time winner and earner of $187,292 Wild For Love, a daughter of legendary Maryland stallion (and now nationally-recognized broodmare sire) Not For Love. Wild For Love is in-foal to first-year stallion Divining Rod, a Grade 3 winner & Grade 1-placed. She will be a part of the broodmare band at Wasabi Ventures Stables.
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.
Wild For Love is out of the multiple stakes winner Sticky, whose other foals to race include $200k+ earner Fara’s Kid and 2018 winner Broad Expanse. Wild For Love has a 2-year-old half-brother by Lemon Drop Kid named Marden working towards his debut at Laurel for their breeder, the Meyerhoffs’ Fitzhugh LLC, and a yearling half-sister by Lookin At Lucky.
Wild For Love’s second dam is the Grade 3 winner Hairspray, and her third dam is Miss Legality, who won the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes among her trio of black-type victories. You can check out her full pedigree here and see more photos of her here.
Wild For Love’s first foal is a yearling colt by Imagining named Dreaming of Love, and she has a weanling filly by Despite the Odds. She is due to deliver her Divining Rod foal in February.
