War Front’s fee raised to $250,000 for 2017


Prominent commercial sire War Front's breeding fees are increasing to $250,000 in 2017, Claiborne Farm in Paris, Ky., announced Monday.

The 14-year-old son of Danzig stood for $200,000 in 2016, a season that has produced runners including Grade/Group 1 winners Avenge and Brave Anna; Grade/Group 2 winners On Leave, Roly Poly, and War Decree; and Grade/Group 3 winners American Patriot, Long Island Sound, Intelligence Cross, Royal Artillery, and War Flag.

“War Front's progeny continue to dominate worldwide at the highest levels, both on the racetrack and in the sale rings,” Claiborne Farm representative Bernie Sams said.

“From a breeder's perspective, he offers the chance to hit the jackpot. Whether it's a Grade 1 winner at Ascot, a Breeders' Cup champion, or a seven-figure sale topper here in the states, anything is possible.”
