Robert S. Evans homebred WHITE FLAG (War Front) makes his debut for trainer Christophe Clement Wednesday. Out of a half-sister to GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies heroine Cash Run (Seeking the Gold) and GI King’s Bishop S. hero Forestry (Storm Cat), the Kentucky-bred’s second dam is GISW Shared Interest (Pleasant Colony).
