Standout Maryland-bred racemare Bold Affair has been retired and will be bred to Ghostzapper.

Bold Affair, a multiple stakes winner in the Mid-Atlantic region, has been retired from racing and will be bred to Kentucky sire Ghostzapper, the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred reports.

The five-year-old Two Punch mare won nine stakes races at Laurel Park, Pimlico Race Course and Parx Racing during her three-year racing career, most recently winning her second consecutive edition of the Primonetta Stakes to remain undefeated in three starts this year. Her most lucrative victory came in the 2011 Jostle Stakes at Parx, where she earned $120,000. She also won back-to-back runnings of the Conniver Stakes at Laurel Park.

Bold Affair retired with 12 wins in 19 races for lifetime earnings of $719,540.

Homebred in Maryland by Charles Reed and Michael Zanella, Bold Affair was the final foal out of the multiple stakes winning Colonial Affair mare Hunka Hunka Lori Z, whose three foals are all winners. Bold Affair was trained by Howard Wolfendale during her racing career.

Ghostzapper, Horse of the Year in 2004, stands at Adena Springs Kentucky in Paris, Ky. for an advertised fee of $40,000. Reed told Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred that the foal would be born, kept, and raced in Maryland.
