Scott, Louisiana USA – February 3, 2023 — Blue Star Racing is proud to announce the arrival of Rushie’s first foal – a filly out of Julia’s Pride (Proud Citizen / Lucy Valentine, by Langfuhr) – bred by Jay Goodwin, Susan Montanye, and Andy Pickerell. Born in Florida, the filly arrived January 31, 2023.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to congratulate the breeders on a really spectacular Rushie filly. She looks to have his powerful shoulder and plenty of leg – which is exactly what we were hoping Rushie would pass along to his progeny,” said Dex Comardelle of Blue Star Racing. “This is a great start to the season.”
Florida-bred Rushie began his stallion career at Pleasant Acres Stallions in 2022 and is now standing at Blue Star Racing in Scott, Louisiana for the 2023 breeding season at $4000 live foal. The Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association provides a lucrative breeding incentive program, making it very attractive to breeders outside its borders, as well as within the state.
From the first crop of Liam’s Map, Rushie won the 2020 G2 Pat Day Mile S. and placed in other graded races, including the G1 Santa Anita Derby and G2 Blue Gras S. His sire, Liam’s Map(Unbridled’s Song / Miss Macy Sue, by Trippi) is a two-time G1 winner of more than $1.3 million. The Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner had six wins and two 2nds from eight starts with a total of six triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures – topping his career with 114 Beyers in his G1 Woodward and G1 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile victories. Rushie’s 1st dam, Conquest Angel(Colonel John / More Oats Please, by Smart Strike) was a $300,000 OBS April two-year-old in training purchase. She is by multiple G1 winner millionaire Colonel John (Tiznow / Sweet Damsel, by Turkoman).
