Other notable Grade I winners in this family include;Champion two year old War Pass, Karlovy Vary, and Oath, among others.

“We have been trying to get a son of War Front for some time, so we are very happy to get this horse at Crestwood.Jack Milton is the only Grade I winning son of War Front to retire to stud in 2016. He has the co-fastest Ragozin number, a 2, for any son of War Front standing at stud. He really fits our program; he was early enough to win first out at three, he is a Grade I winning miler with speed, by a top sire in War Front and he is from a huge female family. In addition, he is a nice individual that retired sound after a long campaign. There is a lot to like about him, and we are confident that he will be very well received by breeders.”
