The first foal for classic-placed Irish War Cry was born the evening of Feb. 12 at Blackstone Farm in Pine Grove, Pa., when the Cape Cross (Ire) mare Danu (Ire) delivered a chestnut colt.
“From all reports he's a big-boned, strapping colt,” said Martin Somers of High Kings Racing, who purchased Danu as a yearling in 2015. “This is our first time breeding and we were delighted that we could breed to such a stallion like Irish War Cry.”
One of the most dynamic runners of his generation, Irish War Cry retired to Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Md., after a career in which he won four stakes and $1,257,060 while racing from 2 to 4 for his breeder Isabelle de Tomaso.
Out of the Polish Numbers mare Irish Sovereign, Irish War Cry is a half-brother to graded stakes winner Irish Strait, stakes-placed Irish Politics and to the dam of 2019 stakes winners Irish Mias and Regally Irish.
Irish War Cry covered 83 mares his first season. The syndicated 6-year-old stallion stands his second season for $6,500 live foal, payable when the foal stands and nurses.
