Battle Plan to stand in Japan


Overbrook Farm's Grade 2 winner Battle Plan, most recently second to Blame in the Grade 1 Stephen Foster last month, will enter stud at Japan's Arrow Stud. A group of Japanese breeders purchased him privately, according to a report in Thoroughbred Daily News.

A 5-year-old Empire Maker homebred, Battle Plan is out of champion juvenile filly Flanders, making him a half-brother to champion 3-year-old filly Surfside.
