Declaration of War 2YO Impressive on Debut

Well bred colt Armistice Day (2c Declaration of War x Harmony Lodge, by Hennessy) opened his account with a commanding victory at Woodbine on Sunday.

Prepared by Barbara Minshall, Armistice Day was allowed to find his feet early, but powered to the line over the concluding stages to win the 5f juvenile maiden on the all weather track by more than five lengths.

A $245,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling purchase, Armistice Day is a half-brother to Grade III winner Stratford Hill from Grade I winner Harmony Lodge.

Armistice Day looks a bright prospect for War Front’s exciting sire son Declaration of War, who has had a great first half of the year highlighted by his French Two Thousand Guineas winner Olmedo.
