FOG OF WAR (c, 2, War Front–Say {Ire} {GSW & G1SP-Ire, SP-Eng, $158,325}, by Galileo {Ire}) rallied from far back to capture his career debut in a driving rain at Saratoga Monday afternoon. Sent off as the 2-1 second choice off a steady series of preps in recent weeks, the bay lagged well off the pace and made piecemeal progress as favorite Seismic Jolt (Kantharos) led through a quarter-mile in :22.55. Gaining steam as All About It (Violence) seized control in midstretch, Fog of War collared that rival inside the final furlong and edged past to score by a neck. Seismic Jolt tired to fourth. Fog of War is a full to Naval Intelligence, SW-Eng. Say, a daughter of the Grade I turf winning mare Riskaverse (Dynaformer), has a yearling colt by War Front and was bred to American Pharoah this season. Sales history: $400,000 Ylg '17 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $46,750. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
