It’s hard to put into words.

“(Blue Prize has) matured and gotten more experience in America (after beginning her career in Argentina). She’s a phenomenal mare. I love (Blue Prize) and Dona Bruja (ARG) (a Grade 3 winner who was second in Saturday’s First Lady-G1) and (Grade 2 winner) Kasaqui (ARG). They have built me.”
