E Dubai Half-Brother Sires First Winner
At Woodbine this week, 8-year old freshman sire War Cry (Unbridled-Words of War, by Lord at War), a half-brother to Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler E Dubai (Mr Prospector-Words Of War, by Lord At War) was represented by his first winner in the form of "homebred 2-year-old filly Jean's a Lady [ex Astue Lady, by Smart Strike]" reports bloodhorse.com. Ontario-bred Jean's a Lady won at the second time of asking and defeated her 11 rivals by a neck for trainer Steve Attard. Standing at Westmeath Stud Farm in Ontario Canada for US$2,000 this year, War Cry was a US$2.7 million Saratoga sale yearling, and his dam is a full-sister to the dam of boom UK sire Raven's Pass (Elusive Quality-Ascutney, by Lord at War), whose yearling colt topped day-1 of this week's Tattersalls October Sale at 800,000 guineas to the bid of Sheik Mohammed's bloodstock manager John Ferguson.
