The three-year-old War Command filly War Witch is offered for sale. She is only being sold as her current owner is leaving racing; price on application.
War Witch has only raced the once so far, when too green to do herself justice in a Ballinrobe maiden over nine-and-a-half-furlongs in July. She dwelt leaving the stalls and was always on the backfoot as a result, so it was a run that can safely be ignored and she remains a filly of real potential.
She is out of the Diktat mare Dixey, who is responsible for two previous winners. These are the Dubawi gelding Dullingham, who sold to Godolphin for 80,000gns as a yearling and went on to win a mile and a quarter maiden at Pontefract for Charlie Appleby, and the Bated Breath filly Drumochter, who won a mile and a quarter Bath handicap at three and later placed over hurdles.
Dixey was herself the winner of two seven-furlong contests as a two-year-old (peak rating of 95) and is a near relation of countless black-type performers including the multiple Group winning and Grp-1 placed sprinter and sire Majestic Missile.
The covering sire War Command was a brilliant six-length winner of the Grp-2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot for trainer Aidan O'Brien, and went on to confirm himself a two-year-old right out of the top drawer when winning the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes.
He retired to Coolmore Stud in 2015 and his first runners emerged onto racecourses two years ago. He has subsequently been represented by numerous smart progeny, such as the Listed-winning two-year-old Victory Command, the Listed-winning sprinter Isaan Queen, and the highly promising French-trained Dick Whittington, who has won two from three and was recently fourth in the Grp-2 Prix Hocquart.
War Witch is an attractive and well-related young filly with good racing and breeding prospects ahead of her. Please get in touch for more information.
