English/Irish highweight U S Navy Flag (War Front-Misty For Me {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}) sired his first foal, a filly, born on Jan. 2, Coolmore announced on Tuesday. The bay is the first foal out of  Far Fetched (Ire), a Fastnet Rock (Aus) half-sister to SW & GSP Arya Tara (Ire) (Dylan Thomas {Ire}). This is the extended family of champion Azamour (Ire) (Night Shift), MG1SW The Autumn Sun (Aus) (Redoute’s Choice {Aus}) and G1 Prix Ganay hero Astarabad (Alleged).

“[She] is a smashing filly with a lovely head and she is very much in the mould of her sire,” said trainer Aidan O’Brien who bred the filly with his wife Annemarie. “It’s great to have such a good foal out of a maiden mare.”

U S Navy Flag won the G1 Middle Park S. and G1 Dewhurst S. at two, before adding the G1 July Cup as a sophomore.
