Kentucky 2YOs: US$475k War Front Colt
Agent Steven Young (acting for an undisclosed client) paid US$475,000 for another War Front colt (out of unraced El Prado mare Rose Of Summer) consigned by Niall Brennan Stables as agent. The colt (a half-brother to Gr1-winner Laragh) clocked 21.2sec for 2 furlongs during the pre-sale breeze-up session & is from the family of Gr1-winner Siphonic Siphon & multiple stakes-winner Dixie Dot Com. Young confirmed the colt would be sent to trainer Christophe Clement & noted: "He's an awful nice horse & he's out of a proven mare. And as much as War Front has improved his mares, if he improves this one, the horse could be very special. He's a great sire & l liked this horse a lot."
