Going to post carrying the legendary Claiborne colors is STRIFE (War Front), a homebred for the storied operation under the tutelage of Christophe Clement. Out of Black Dynamite (More Than Ready), a winning half-sister to MGSW Chocolate Ride (Candy Ride {Arg})–himself a course-record setter in the GII Melvin H. Muniz Jr. H., Strife is the first to the races for that mare.

Her dam is also a half-sister to GISW Killer Graces (Congaree), who made a name in Japan as the dam of G1SW-Jpn Killer Ability (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) and SP-Jpn Killer Presence (Jpn) (Heart's Cry {Jpn}). This is the immediate female family of three-time Turkish champion Hakeem (Harlan's Holiday). The morning line has Strife at 7-2 in this mile maiden on the turf.
