The aptly named Vampire was notorious for her mean nature, the first time the Duke went to look at her after she reached Eaton; she backed towards him, trying to kick him. This caused the Duke to take a great dislike to her and he seriously considered getting rid of her but he let her stay. When her first foal was born, Vampire killed it and injured the man who was looking after her. Many years later she was bred again and gave birth to the Triple Crown winner Flying Fox.
