War Front Filly Takes The Early Lead at KEESEP

A filly by perennial leading sire War Front dropped the hammer at $1.2 million from Eddie Woods, agent for Seahorse Stables, to get day two of the Keeneland September Sale off to a positive start Tuesday in Lexington. The Mar. 24 foal is a daughter of the stakes-winning Vaulcluse (A. P. Indy), the dam of Sovereign Award winner Lukes Alley (Flower Alley) as well as SW & GSP 'TDN Rising Star' Arrifana (Curlin). Hip 223 was bred and consigned by Gainesway, who acquired Vaulcluse for $600,000 at the 2016 Fasig-Tipton November Sale when offered not in foal. The mare's foal of 2018, a filly now named Nette Nette (Empire Maker), was acquired for $950,000 out of this auction in 2019. Woods told TVG that his purchase was made on behalf of a client that could not travel over for the sale and that she could end up in Ireland.
