Fog of War to Stand in New York


Fog of War | Michael Burns

Fog of War (War Front–Say {Ire}, Galileo {Ire}), winner of the GI Summer S. at two, will stand the 2021 season at Questroyal/Hidden Lake Farm near Stillwater, New York. The 4-year-old stands as property of White Birch Farm Inc. and Three C Stables LLC with a stud fee set at $7,000, live foal stands and nurses.

A $400,000 Keeneland September yearling, Fog of War was purchased by White Birch Farm and raced under the colors of Peter M. Brant his entire career. He was trained by Chad Brown.

Fog of War's dam Say was a Group 3 winner in Ireland. She produced two full brothers to Fog of War– Invader, a $500,000 Keeneland September yearling who won the John Battaglia Memorial S. by 6 1/4 lengths, and Naval Intelligence, a stakes winner in Great Britain.

Fog of War's second dam Riskaverse was a MGISW. This is the family of 2011 Horse of the Year and champion older mare Havre De Grace.

Chris Larsen commented, “I'm excited to partner with Peter Brant to bring Fog of War to stud in New York. This will give breeders access to the world's most successful sire lines Peter and I love as well as taking advantage of the lucrative NYS breeder awards and restricted racing programs. We think Fog of War is destined to be New York State's great sire.”

“Fog of War's win first time out at Saratoga and his Grade I victory in the “Win and You're In” Summer S. at Woodbine beating War of Will, showed us that he was our best colt of that crop and marked him as one of the clear favorites for the 2018 Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf,” Brant said. “Unfortunately, Fog bucked his shins and would not make the race but his undefeated 2-year-old campaign managed to show everyone his brilliant turn of foot and class. Fog of War has all the makings of a potentially high-class stallion with his conformation, pedigree and speed. I am so thrilled Fog will have the opportunity to be an exciting freshman stallion in New York and also allow White Birch Farm to be a new player in the New York State breeding and racing program.”
