We recently acquired the young mare One That Got Away with the express intent of breeding her back to Blofeld, who we think is an absolutely perfect fit for her.
We bought One That Got Away with the specific intent of breeding her to Blofeld, but first we’ll get to see her first foal from the first crop of the tough and durable turf sprinter/miler True Valour.
Blofeld continues to put up excellent statistics in Maryland, and he makes an ideal first match for Star of Shanghai, from Larry Johnson’s foundation Ran’s Chick family.
