U S Navy Flag
One of the fastest by War Front, U S Navy Flag’s dam Misty For Me was good enough to win four Gr.1 races and is also dam of triple Gr.1 winner Roly Poly. U S Navy Flag displayed similar talent and toughness as a juvenile winning the Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes and the Gr.1 Dewhurst Stakes. Although second in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, U S Navy Flag showed his true worth when dropped back to 6f in the Gr.1 July Cup.
Mares by sons of DANEHILL create just 3x4 to Danzig. This opens the door to mares by his many sire sons. There is plenty of scope for mares by grandsons of DANEHILL, such as ZOFFANY, BATED BREATH, DANDY MAN, CHOISIR and MASTERCRAFTSMAN. Mares by sons of GREEN DESERT also create only 3x4 to Danzig. Mares by LAWMAN, KINGMAN and SHOWCASING also appeal.
U S Navy Flag looks sure to be suited by mares by PIVOTAL and his sons, including SIYOUNI and KYLLACHY. Another son of War Front sired the classic-winning Olmedo from a PIVOTAL mare.
War Front has three Gr.1 winners out of SADLER’S WELLS mares. He also has a Gr.2 winner out of an EL PRADO mare and a Gr.3 winner with a MONTJEU dam. U S Navy Flag’s first yearlings included a €200,000 filly inbred 3x3 to GALILEO.
U S Navy Flag has a second dam by STORM CAT, but he is still an option for this line. Mares by SHAMARDAL, LOPE DE VEGA, SCAT DADDY and NO NAY NEVER should suit.
Daughters of ACCLAMATION, DARK ANGEL and EQUIANO will reinforce U S Navy Flag’s precocity.
War Front sired Gr.1 winner Lancaster Bomber from a mare by INDIAN RIDGE and War Front’s son Due Diligence has two Gr.3 winners with mares by INDIAN RIDGE’s son COMPTON PLACE.
Further MR PROSPECTOR blood should work well, as War Front has Gr.1 winners with dams by MISWAKI, FORTY NINER, SEEKING THE GOLD, SMART STRIKE, WOODMAN and UNBRIDLED’S SONG.
War Front has Graded winners from mares by two BLUSHING GROOM line stallions, including the top-class Declaration of War from a RAHY mare.
