Blofeld (by Quality Road out of Storm Minstrel, by Storm Cat), was an undefeated multiple Graded stakes-winning juvenile by the hottest young stallion in the country today. He stands at Murmur Farm in Maryland.
After breaking his maiden going 5 furlongs first-time out at Saratoga with an 88 Beyer Speed Figure, Blofeld returned to take the historic Futurity Stakes-G2 going 6 furlongs at Belmont with a 94 Beyer (originally pegged at a 100), and then stretched out to win the Nashua Stakes-G2 going a mile with a 93 Beyer and complete a perfect 3-for-3 juvenile season. After an abbreviated 3-year-old year during which he finished third in the William Walker Stakes from two starts, Blofeld came back at 4 to score in the Gulfstream Park Handicap-G2 over a mile, with a career top 103 Beyer. He earned a total of $745,420.
A $135,000 weanling and then $275,000 yearling from the first crop of his sire (who sired a pair of 2017 Eclipse Award winners and will stand in 2019 for a live foal fee of $150,000 after siring five individual Grade 1 winners in 2018), Blofeld is from carefully-cultivated Ned Evans families on both the top and bottom sides of his pedigree. His pedigree is free of Dixie Union and Deputy Minister, whose daughters have provided Quality Road with much of his success thus far.
Blofeld entered stud in 2018.
