Declaration Of War

Declaration of War launched his career last year in France with two consecutive victories for breeder Joe Allen at Porni-chet la Baule and Deauville racecourses in France. Following his two-year-old season, Allen sold a percentage of the Kentucky-bred to Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith and the colt was transferred from trainer Jean Claude-Roget to Aidan O’Brien. In his three-year-old debut for his new connections, Declaration of War finished fourth in a graded stakes at the Curragh in Ireland on September 9. Three weeks later he won at the Curragh and then won the Diamond Stakes (Ire-G3) on Oct. 5 at Ireland’s Dundalk racecourse for his fourth win in five career starts. Allen also bred and raced the colt’s sire War Front, who finished seventh in the 2006 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1), and now ranks as one of the nation’s leading sires.
