2010: Unnamed foal, dk b/ f, by Roman Ruler.

So, with five empty years in her last six seasons, she went through the January sale for $7,000, and trainer (and breeder) Bob Baffert is the breeder of G1 winner Misremembered.

Baffert has good karma with this mare, and with her spotty record, maybe that’s as much as anyone can hope. Best of luck to them both.
