Keeneland Sept Day-1: $1.9M for War Front Colt
A colt by War Front out of two-time Gr1-winning mare Iotapa (Afleet Alex) has become the first horse to fetch seven figures on day one of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale in Kentucky when selling for US$1.9 million. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, the colt (Hip 27) was purchased by Donato Lanni during the select Book 1 session. "He's a lovely colt, I can't say who I bought him for," Lanni told Blood Horse. “He just looked like a good horse. He looks like a really athletic horse, a strong horse. We wanted him and we got him." The colt is the first foal out of Iotapa, winner of the Gr1 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes & Gr1 Vanity Stakes.
