Breeders' Cup Champion Fire At Will Offered As Stallion Prospect On Fasig-Tipton Digital

Fire At Will | Sarah Andrew

Bidding is now open for the “Fire At Will Flash Sale,” a one-horse auction on Fasig-Tipton Digital of GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Fire At Will (Declaration of War–Flirt, by Kitten's Joy). The 5-year-old is consigned as a stallion prospect by Bluewater Sales, agent. Bidding will close this coming Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 2 PM ET.

“This is, perhaps, the most powerful stallion family in the world today,” said noted pedigree expert Alan Porter.

The Kentucky-bred is out of the unraced Flirt, a half-sister to Grade I winner Decorated Invader (Declaration of War). This represents the family of Stormy Atlantic (Storm Cat).

Victorious in his second start at two in Saratoga's With Anticipation S., the dark bay added a score in the GII Pilgrim S. and followed up with a win at the world championships. At three, he finished off the board in the GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S., and subsequently came home third in the GIII Transylvania S. To date, he has earned $675,932 on the track.

Added Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton Director of Digital Sales, “Fire At Will has the credentials to be a successful sire in the United States or abroad. He's a Breeders' Cup winning juvenile from an elite sire line and from one of the top sire-producing female families in the stud book. On top of all that, he is an outstanding individual physically. Stud farms from around the globe should give him a serious look.”

Fire At Will is available for viewing beginning this Saturday, Jan. 7 at Bluewater Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. To learn more, visit the auction page.
