€80,000 War Command colt lights up Fairyhouse

War Command has enjoyed a superb recent run on the track and his second-crop have been in demand at this week’s Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale at Fairyhouse.

Heading the way on €80,000 on Tuesday was a colt out of the Mr Greeley mare Acts Out Loud, who was bought by Matt Coleman of Stroud Coleman Bloodstock (pictured).

The February-born colt, bred by Highpark Bloodstock, is set to join Jonjo O’Neill, who is looking to increase his team to race on the flat.

“Jonjo is keen to develop a Flat string and have a few specific Flat horses in training, and has asked me to find him some horses,” said Coleman. “I really liked this horse, he is a good-looking type. War Command is doing well and the mare has had a couple of winners, including a smart filly in Dianthus.”
