Declaration of War Filly Sharp in Gulfstream Unveiling


Eve of War | Lauren King

6th-Gulfstream, $43,000, Msw, 2-2, 3yo, f, 6f, 1:11.01, ft.
EVE OF WAR (f, 3, Declaration of War–Special Thanks, by Broken Vow) was pounded down to even-money off a steady, if not overly quick series of drills at Palm Beach Downs (click for XBTV video), but she showed plenty of zip in the afternoon to run up the score Sunday. Slicing through foes soon after the start to take over, she sped away by several lengths heading to the turn and always appeared in a race of her own from that point forward. Ridden out with hands and heels after posting a :46.11 half, she cruised to the line 7 1/2 lengths to the good of firster and $400,000 KEESEP yearling Skinny Dip (Into Mischief). The winner's dam is the first foal out of an unraced daughter of MGSW Bedanken (Geri) who cost $115,000 as a yearling. Her Street Sense filly cost just $22,000 at the 2019 Keeneland September sale. After producing an Air Force Blue filly last season she was bred back to Hard Spun. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $25,800. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
