2012 Black Mare | When Merriehill Farm announced they were reducing their breeding stock, we immediately contacted Paulette Bodnar to see what she had available. That this incredible and relatively young producer was available was like an early Christmas present to us!
In foal to WC DRESSED UP GCH (Mizrahi x Unzipped) for 2021!
Her first foal, Merriehill Maleficent GCH (by Merriehill After Hours GCH) has been winning championships in hand since her debut as a weanling. Reserve Grand Champion Mare at the Jubilee as a weanling, World Champion Junior Mare, Futurity Yearling Filly, Grand National Champion Yearling Filly and Reserve World Champion Mare (as a yearling) were just her accomplishments from the first two years. As a two year old, this stunning filly was again the World Champion Junior Mare as well as the World Champion Futurity 2YO Mare. As a three year old, Maleficent began her performance career winning a UPHA Pleasure Driving Classic Championship before heading back the the Grand National for her second Reserve World Champion Mare title.
With two more foals by After Hours, and her 2020 colt by World Champion Dressed Up GCH, she has cemented her importance as a valuable broodmare and we can’t wait to see what she produces for Newmont Morgans!
