Declaration Of War X Flying Empress Colt

Declaration Of War X Flying Empress Colt

2 year old Colt

Sire: Declaration of War Dam: Flying Empress

Trainer's Name: Colin Little


This lovely colt is from the first Australian crop of yearlings by dual GR. 1 winner Declaration of War (the son of War Front his 2017 fee: $250,000) He is an American-bred, Irish-trained thoroughbred racehorse. He won the Gr. 3 Diamond Stakes in 2012, but emerged as a world-class performer in the following year, winning the Gr.1 Queen Anne Stakes and Gr.1 International Stakes and being placed in the Eclipse Stakes, Sussex Stakes and Breeders' Cup Classic.

Declaration Of War is the best performed and best looking son of War Front whom is one of the hottest young sires in the world. He was unbeaten as a two-year-old and a dual Group One winner as an older horse. Michael Kirwan, Coolmore's Australia general manager said "Declaration Of War is a horse we just had to have at Coolmore Australia. He was a fabulous racehorse – a dual Group 1 winner who was as tough and sound as you could get. His sire, War Front has made a start to his stud career that is reminiscent of his own sire Danzig, so it’s a hugely exciting new branch of an already established bloodline." This sire won over distances from 1500m - 2150m, he showed great versatility on the track. His oldest progeny in Australia are now yearlings. 

His yearlings have sold for up to €475,000 at Goff's, US$400,000 at Keeneland and $230,000 in Australia so buyers have a lot of faith in his offspring.

His dam Flying Empress is by Fusaichi Pegasus (a favourite broodmare sire of Colin's) She is a multiple city winner and this is her first foal. Her pedigree shows an outstanding list of Champion sires on the mares side, Fusaichi Pegasus, Zabeel, Arazi and Secretariat does it get any better

Colin's view, "he is a big strong, athletic colt, with faultless confirmation. A great head and jaw, I am impressed with the progeny of this sire and look forward to training him".
