Sire: WAR COMMAND (USA)
Dam: SABANCAYA (GB)
Dam Sire: NAYEF (USA)
A strong and good natured four-year-old NH gelding by War Command is offered for sale.
He has been broken in and ridden away, and has already demonstrated that he jumps well. Easy to do and standing 16.1hh, he is open to any vetting.
This cracking prospect is out of the Nayef mare Sabancaya, who was a dual winner on the AW over a mile-and-three-quarters for Pam Sly. She has since produced the British mile-and-a-quarter winner Vivo Per Lei, the three-time Italian Flat winner Time Is Precious - who ran well in stakes company on more than one occasion - and the Italian Jumps winner Inclusive Price.
Sabancaya is in turn a sibling of the South African Grp-1 winner and sire Noordhoek Flyer, a blue blooded connection which explains why the aforementioned Time Is Precious was a 70,000gns yearling purchase at Tattersalls in 2014.
There are high-class black-type performers throughout this pedigree, with stellar names such as the St Leger winner Mastery, further Grp-1 winners Cherokee Rose, Mukhadram and Kirkless, plus the exciting young sire Cable Bay, all featuring under the third dam. The covering sire War Command now stands at Haras de Gelos in France after several seasons with Coolmore.
A son of the mighty War Front and winner of the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes and Grp2 Coventry Stakes as a two-year-old when trained by Aidan O'Brien, War Command has produced several smart flat types - such as the Listed-winning juvenile Victory Command - though it his early results under NH rules that really catch the eye.
From a small pool of runners he has already been represented by the 130-rated Fred Winter seventh Theatre Of War, the maiden hurdle winners Cassus and Battle of Benburb, plus the bumper winners Commander Rocks and On My Command, to name just a few. These early indicators suggest he can develop into a very useful jumps sire, whilst it is also noteworthy that his only previous recorded runner out of a Nayef mare is the Listed-placed Midnight Season, who ran in the Derby Italiano earlier this year.
This young horse has the physical characteristics to match his exciting pedigree, and rates a high-quality prospect for the season ahead and beyond. Please get in touch for more details.
