“Sweet Orange had a beautiful nature as a racehorse. A truly striking son of War Front,” - David Ferraris (Trainer)
“We are very high on War Front's prospects as a sire of sires. We've been very encouraged by what Declaration of War has achieved so far with two graded stakes winners from his first crop already and the reports on War Command and Air Force Blue's stock has been very positive. War Front is obviously an exceptional sire as he showed again last season with the likes of US Navy Flag and he is from such an influential sire line. You can really see the similarities between War Front and Danzig so it makes sense that War Front would pass that influence down the line through his sons. With the quality of colts War Front has in the pipeline we couldn't be higher on the future of his sons at stud,” - Dermot Ryan (Coolmore USA)
"Despite the lower numbers of mares covered in his first three seasons we were disappointed to see the horse go to Queensland but we are more than happy to get him back. He leaves nice horses and the feedback from those that have them in work has been most encouraging. His progeny have been well received in the marketplace to date and already we are receiving bookings to him for this season, standing at $5,000. He could be the dark horse." - Brent Gillovic (Highview)
