Top Broodmare Haveaheavenlytime Euthanized

Judy Klosterman’s blue hen mare Haveaheavenlytime, whose success as a broodmare runs three generations deep, was euthanized Sept. 19 because of complications from the infirmities of old age. The 25-year-old daughter of Halo was buried at Klosterman’s Langsem Farm near Loveland, Ohio.

Klosterman, who purchased Haveaheavenlytime for $40,000 at the 1985 Keeneland September yearling sale, captured one of 11 races before becoming a broodmare. She produced 17 foals, a dozen of which have won, including stakes winners Conjuress (by Indian Charlie), Enticed (Stage Door Johnny), Heavenliness (Lord Avie), Hiho Heaven (Claim), and Unbridled Time(by Unbridled's Song). Haveaheavenlytime’s youngest offspring is a Holy Bull yearling filly named Invoke.

Unbridled Time was the highest-priced yearling from Unbridled’s Song’s first crop, selling for $1.15 million to Robert and Beverly Lewis at the 1999 Keeneland September yearling sale. Unbridled Time was a multiple stakes winner and graded stakes-placed. He stands at stud at Signature Stallions near Reddick, Fla.

Enticed and Heavenliness, along with half-sisters Angel of Love, Behaving, and I Insist, developed into stakes producers. Enticed, who raced for Klosterman in partnership and is now pensioned at Langsem, produced two stakes winners, including Intrigued. A stakes producer herself, Intrigued is in foal to major winner Henrythenavigator.

Haveaheavenlytime, out of the Hoist the Flag mare Bennington Flag, was bred in Virginia by James and Alice Mills’ Hickory Tree Farm.
