Woot, Mariasmon has done a lot of the work for me as I go on my yearly quest to figure out War Front's entire book. :lol:

Christmas Joy (IRE) - War Front
My Miss Sophia - War Front

With those two, that makes 58 mares bred so far. They've always been conservative with him (which is nice, and also is probably part of the reason why he gets such good prices at auction) and I wonder if his, uh, success rate is going down as he ages. He's not a spring chicken.

IIRC, Danzig and his sons have a reputation for less-than-spectacular fertility.
:? Has anyone else also heard that?

Its not just Danzig's line. Its the Northern Dancer line. Obviously its not all of them either. Ones I can think of off the top of my head, Snaafi Dancer, Cigar, Lure, George Washington, Starspangledbanner, Cacique, Al Kazeem, El Gran Senor(was pensioned before age 20 because of it), Summer Squall(pensioned because of fertility issues), etc. I also remember Dixie Union moving farms his first year at stud because of fertility but they thought he would be able to overcome it and it was more due to age.

Have to feel sorry for Snaafi Dancer. What a price at auction, what a bust. Dear John Dunlop one stated that Snaafi Dancer wouldn't have beaten his dog in a race. Beautiful walk, though.

I wonder what's up with that mare. She has a flag as not Properly Imported/Returned (Christmas Joy (IRE))

WinStar hasn't submitted their Report of Mares Bred yet. Claiborne has.

Last I checked, Claiborne was the only farm that had. If things hold true to form from past years, I would imagine WinStar will be near the end of the month. Spendthrift is usually the last dog dead, sometimes even coming in late. Of the Farms that stand a larger number of stallions, I would expect Darley and Gainesway to be next. Maybe Lane's End.

Well, War Front in particular hasn't been overly reliable.

I found a few more who went to War Front:
Ausus
Mufajaah
No Fault of Mine
Sentiero Italia
