Just a $100,000 Keeneland September purchase, ODE TO WAR (War Front) is a son of MG1SW Odeliz (Ire) (Falco), Italy's high-weighted older mare who RNA'd for $1.5m at the 2015 Tattersalls December Mares Sale. Already the dam of a pair of winners, Odeliz is a half to SW Pamplemousse (Ire) (Siyouni {Fr}) and traces back to MGSP Uncoiled (Fr) (Giant's Causeway) and MGISW Amorama (Fr) (Sri Pekan). Trainer George Arnold has tagged Luca Panici for the ride.
