Soldier's Call | Racing Post

Multiple group-winning 2-year-old Soldier's Call (GB) (Showcasing {GB}) will enter stud at Joe Foley's Ballyhane next season, according to Racing Post. Trained by Archie Watson for Clipper Logistics, Soldier's Call won Royal Ascot's Listed Windsor Castle S. before picking up victories in the G3 Prix d'Arenberg and G2 Flying Childers S. He missed victory by a neck when third in the G1 Prix de l'Abbaye facing older horses and picked up two more Group 1 placings at three this year when third behind Blue Point (Ire) (Shamardal) in the G1 King's Stand S. and second to Battaash (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) in the G1 Nunthorpe S.

Foley, who selected Soldier's Call for 85,000gns as a yearling, told Racing Post, “It's brilliant that Soldier's Call is coming back to Ballyhane where he was broken and pre-trained; we can't wait for him to come home. He was brilliantly fast, has a real stallion's pedigree and the good looks and temperament of a champion.”
