Blended Citizen (Proud Citizen–Langara Lass, by Langfuhr), a three-time graded stakes winner, has been purchased by DMW Racing Stables and will enter stud in Oklahoma for the 2021 breeding season. Mike Recio brokered the transaction on the 5-year-old on behalf of owners Sayjay Racing, LLC, Greg Hall and Brooke Hubbard.
Blended Citizen's resume includes wins in the 2018 GIII Peter Pan S. and GIII Jeff Ruby Steaks and also a win in this year's GIII Louisiana S. via disqualification. He retires with a record of 22-5-1-2 and earnings of $558,230.
“Blended Citizen was an incredibly talented and versatile individual,” Hubbard said. “He showed tremendous ability to win on three different surfaces and to win graded stakes races on both dirt and synthetic against some of the top horses of his generation. We are excited about his future and to his first-crop of foals in 2022.”
Bred by Ray Hanson, Blended Citizen is out of the multiple stakes-winning Langfuhr mare Langara Lass. The $85,000 OBS March graduate is a half-brother to the stakes-winning millionaire Lookin At Lee (Lookin At Lucky), runner-up in the 2017 GI Kentucky Derby.
“We could not be more pleased to acquire an exceptional horse like Blended Citizen,” said Matt Wilkett
of DMW Racing Stables. “We think a horse with his depth of pedigree, paired with his ability to win as a 2-year-old and at the graded stakes level at three, makes him an attractive horse for breeders in Oklahoma at the southwest region.”
Blended Citizen will stand for an introductory rate of $2,000 at Collett Equine Veterinary Service.
