Gimcrack Likely Target For War Command
Outstanding European 2YO War Command (War Front-Wandering Star, by Red Ransom) is a possible candidate for the Gr2 Gimcrack Stakes (1200m) at York later next month, reports turftrax.com. War Command's breathtaking 6-length romp in the Gr2 Coventry Stakes was easily the most impressive performance at Royal Ascot and stamped him as Europe's best juvenile. Trained by Aiden O'Brien, War Command is a son of the exciting Danzig stallion War Front (Danzig-Starry Dreamer, by Rubiano) which stands at the historic Claiborne Farm in Kentucky. War Front, sire of Gr1 winners Declaration Of War, The Factor, Data Link & Summer Soiree, has creating global headlines with his remarkable early statistics. So far he has produced 116 winners (21 stakes winners) from 162 runners for progeny earnings of over $14 million.
