"Saxon Warrior is a very impressive horse physically. He’s got great form at 2 and 3 and I think he’s definitely the type that should suit Australian racing conditions." Mike O’Donnell, Fairhill Farm

“I loved Saxon Warrior on paper, he’s got impeccable credentials as a sire prospect. After seeing him at the stallion parades I like him even more, he is an outstanding type.” - Adrian Hancock, bloodstock agent

“Saxon Warrior is an absolute belter. He is the ideal physical type for Australia and I couldn't have been more impressed when I saw him at Coolmore” - Scott Irwin, Rothwell Park

"Glenn Burrows also believes Saxon Warrior (Jpn) might get under the guard of a few people in Australia and will look to support the Coolmore freshman as well. "You look at his credentials. He was a top-class racehorse, has a speed pedigree, by Deep Impact (Jpn) and is a good-looking horse at $22,500" TDN AusNZ, 12th September 2019

"I think it only pays an enormous compliment to Saxon Warrior, who beat us a neck in the Racing Post Trophy at ‘Donny’ and was imperious in the Guineas" - John Gosden following Roaring Lion’s Dante Stakes success

"maintained his unbeaten record in determined style in the influential G1 Racing Post Trophy, despite being intimidated by the hanging Roaring Lion" - Andrew Caulfield, TDN

"Saxon Warrior gave Donnacha O’Brien a first Classic success with an imperious display in the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Maintaining his unbeaten record, the Deep Impact colt had reportedly strengthened up over the winter and duly cruised to the front over a furlong out." Irish Times
