Kentucky 2YOs: US$485k War Front Colt
John Moynihan (again bidding on behalf of Jess Jackson's Stonestreet Stables) also paid US$485,000 for a colt from the 2nd-crop of War Front (out of winning El Prado mare La Prada) consigned by Ciaran Dunne's Wavertree Stables as agent. The colt (previously sold for just US$60,000 as a yearling at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton October Sale) is from the family of stakes-winners Tommeyesgold & Cayenne Red. The colt clocked 10.0sec for 1 furlong in the pre-sale breeze-up session & Moynihan commented: "He went out extremely fast (in the breeze-ups). He's a gorgeous horse. We thought we'd take a chance."
