Older Comments about War Command...

This comes from the front page of today's AtTheRaces.com web-site via trainer Aidan O'Brien: Unbeaten colt Geoffrey Chaucer could be prepared for a tilt at the G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains(French 2000 Guineas) at Longchamp on May 11th. O'Brien said Geoffrey Chaucer will either go there or the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial at Leopardstown on the same day. English St Leger winner Leading Light is being pointed at the G1 Ascot Gold Cup and will begin his season in the Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan. Also headed to Ascot is the former American based Verrazano for the G1 Queen Anne Stakes at a mile according to O'Brien. He ended the interview by saying that War Command and Australia are both well and training great and both will are being pointed at Newmarket for the G1 English 2000 Guineas, which now puts to rest any previous comments I've seen on here about War Command skipping the English Guineas for the French equivalent. If Australia does indeed show up at Newmarket that just put a whole new twist on the Guineas picture for Kingman & Toormore as far as I'm concerned.

  • paul.nathan.946 · yes hes got not many good ones i think hes got a chance of winning the derby he won't be sending over a donkey like last year the most likely and IMO the best one is giovanni boldini the UAE derby is a race you want to watch for derby contenders · 170 days ago
  • paul.nathan.946 · hes got so many* · 170 days ago
CONSIDER THIS MAN AND HIS SIBLING THE BEST HORSE IN THIS YEARS FIELD NOTHING WILL STOP THIS HORSES COMPAIN UNLESS A FREAK BARBARO ACCIDENT DECIDES TO OCCUR LIFE SLEEP AND BREATHE HANDICAPPING
This is one of the best bred horses youll ever see! Wow Danzig, Red Ransom,Roberto,His majesty,Roberto>NorthernDancer WOWWW!!!!
  • travel_vic · the top 100 high priced yearlings had the same thing and what, only a single one came close to a return on that money while racing? · 220 days ago
  • EP Taylor · Buzzcat, go look at Commissioner's pedigree. It is a crap shoot regardless, but both sides top to bottom have very nice horses. · 220 days ago
Wonder if we'll see this colt come stateside. ...?

  • Northport · Like Paul said, War Command is a Coolmore first-stringer. I don't doubt that O'Brien will try to get a horse into the KY Derby via the UAE Derby, but it will not be War Command · 220 days ago
  • goblin · Yes, Northport. ;) · 220 days ago
Really like this colt, and I love the sire War Front. That being said, for as visually impressive as War Command's win in the Coventry Stakes was, that race really hasn't turned out to be that strong of a renewal. The first horses over the line behind War Command in the Coventry, Parbold, Sir John Hawkins, & Thunder Strike are 0 for 8 collectively between them since the Coventry Stakes. Plus, War Command was turned over in his very next race in Ireland in the G1 Phoenix Stakes. He's since rebounded to win the G2 Futurity Stakes and G1 Dewhurst Stakes, but both of those wins were much tougher work for War Command than his Coventry win was. Right now he's ammassed the more impressive resume', but I still think Australia is the best 2yo that Coolmore have this season. But I would rank War Command second behind him. JMO.

  • rafirox · Interesting take, turfracing. War Command is my favorite juvenile, as you probably know, and I think he is the best. Australia is good, too, though. · 319 days ago
  • jonquil · Sorry, Turf, but I disagree. I feel that using the Coventry like that is a bad idea - 2yos, even top level 2yos, don't have established form and growth for 2yos isn't necessarily linear or straightforward. Also, there's a lot to take into account for Parbold at least (I didn't pay as much attention to the other two, tbh). His race against Toormore was over a month after his race against War Command and on top of that he was making late running late from nearer to the back, but didn't have the time to catch the first two - Toormore and Outstrip who was clearly tiring. He wasn't that far behind those two. His race against Astaire was run in a completely different style and they wasted his energy up front vs Astaire. Wilshire Boulevard had conserved his energy and got a late run forward, but Astaire held him off while Parbold didn't have quite the stamina for a front-running style. I think the running style in the Toormore race worked best for him and I hope they use it for him again because I think he definitely has a good sprinter's finish to make use of. I'd like to see him as a 3yo and I hope they'll take good care of him! · 319 days ago
Looks like a monster in the making.... Just saw some of his replays recommended by a friend. He's THE juvenile to watch. I hope he comes to the Breeder's Cup Turf Juvenile. @Iluvturfracing, Northport, and Euro Trash. What do you guys think about this colt?

  • jmac500 · His Coventry Stakes was amazing. · 320 days ago
  • rafirox · Hey, Turfracing. You are correct and also remember Derrick Smith has a few American runners, Magnier has a few as well, and so does Tabor. None of these owners stay away from America, in fact, they often send several to the Breeder's Cup. Coolmore generally sends second-stringers, so to speak, over to America. Considering War Command has commenced to be given attention and hype, I would think they would not send him over. As I said in my post, Turfracing, the Racing Post Trophy seems to be a safer, more reliable and more logical race for their long-term goal (the 2014 English 2000 Guineas). Quite frankly, as a fan of this colt, I hope he stays in England. It makes much more sense and it would be better for his future. However, as a fan, a part of me really wants him to come over. We'll see. Either way, I'll assure you we have not seen the best from him yet. · 320 days ago
No suprise in the G1 Dewhurst Stakes as the favorite War Command holds off Cable Bay in 2nd by just over a length to get the win.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @jonquil, I think the ground at Newmarket was maybe a little softer than ideal for him today. I think that had a lot to do with why he made hard work of winning the Dewhurst, but he won nontheless. · 320 days ago
  • jonquil · Yeah, but not soft enough to help Stormardal any it appears. I hope War Command doesn't become the type that gets scratched due to less than ideal going in races. He doesn't have as quick a turn of foot as many others do. · 320 days ago
Won the Dewhurst Stakes!
War Command rebounds from a disappointing 3rd in the G1 Phoenix Stakes last time out to win the G2 Futurity Stakes at the Curragh in Ireland. Back on track, now onwards and upwards!!
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Pretty easy victory for War Command today. Won by the Futurity Stakes by 3 lengths. · 369 days ago
  • jonquil · I knew he'd do it. :) He's such a good horse and this win helped make my day. · 369 days ago
War Command, who was an impressive winner of the G2 Coventry Stakes at Ascot finishes 3rd behind Sudirman and Big Time in the G1 Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh in Ireland.
