"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

His only foal offered at the 2020 JRHA Select Sale sold for 41 million Yen - $550,000
