Curlin's Honor Sires First Foal

The first foal by Curlin's Honor Pleasant Acres Stallions

Curlin's Honor (Curlin–Franscat, by Stormin Fever), a seven-figure 2-year-old auction purchase who went on to become a dual stakes winner and six times graded stakes placed, has sired his first foal, a chestnut filly out of Be All You Can Be (War Front), Pleasant Acres Stallions announced Tuesday.

“We're delighted to greet the first foal by Curlin's Honor, and this is an especially interesting one, as it's the first foal of a War Front mare closely related to Lines of Battle, War Flag and Civil Union,” said Pedigree Consultants' Alan Porter. “Curlin's Honor had a great reception in his first year at Pleasant Acres Stallions. Given his background–he's the fastest son of Curlin, with five clockings of 1:08 and change for six furlongs, and from the fabulous Tartan Farm family of Fappiano, Quiet American and nine other graded sires–we think he has a great shot of making it as a stallion. In fact, we are actively acquiring more mares to breed to him in 2022.”

Selling for $1.5 million at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic in 2017, Curlin's Honor banked $356,545 in his 17-race career and defeated Grade I winner Voodoo's Song (English Channel) in winning the Artie Schiller S. at Aqueduct in 2019. He entered stud at Pleasant Acres in 2021 and stands for $2,500.
