    Default Lord At War - ARG TB

    Lord At War


    Any thoughts on him as a damsire for sport horses?

    I seem to recall he was an excellent broodmare sire for racing in his day, that's usually a good thing for performance since endurance on the bottom/strength on the top is considered the ideal. I'm pretty sure I dealt with a few Lord at War offspring back then, and I don't recall them being difficult (I don't recall them being fantastic either, but a lot of babies makes things hazy for all but the really rotten ones or the personal faves - generally out of specific mares not stallions)
    I drink and I know things. That's what I do.

    William Fox-Pitt has been bringing along an SF Brigadier Gerard descendant (TB dam) who has a son as damsire. They've got to 3*, which they won last year.

    Thanks for the comments! I have my eye on a mare by With Approval out of a Lord At War mare - still racing but I'm hoping when she's ready for a new career I might be able to scoop her up. Of course all of that remains to be seen, but I felt like going through her pedigree anyway

    I think I might be pretty familiar with this family. Would you mind linking the pedigree of the mare.

    I looked up Caro/Cozzene a while back and seem to recall that With Approval was the most currently successful sport line out there.

    That was my recollection also. I really like her breeding quite a bit - I'm certainly going to try to keep tabs on her this season, and if she becomes available I'd like to bring her home.
