The first foal by Editorial, a winning half-brother to champion Uncle Mo, was born earlier this month, when the No Armistice mare Sweet Valor had a colt at Country Roads Farm in Warwick, Md.

Sweet Valor, a winner in two of 14 career starts in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, is from the family of Grade 2 winner Yourmissinthepoint and G3-placed stakes winner Launch a Dream. She raced for Sweet Spirits Stables, which is also the breeder of her Editorial filly.

Editorial, a 5-year-old son of War Front, stands at Roland Farm in Warwick, Md., for an advertised fee of $3,500. He won one of two career starts racing for the Coolmore partnership and trainer Todd Pletcher.

Out of the stakes-placed Arch mare Playa Maya, Editorial is a half-brother to the champion juvenile and prominent sire Uncle Mo, and he is a full-brother to Could It Be Love, who was second in the G1 Irish One Thousand Guineas. His extended family includes the Peruvian champion Eithan and U.S. G3 winner Woods of Windsor.

“Editorial's first foal is very leggy but more importantly has his very powerful shoulder,” said Sean Feld of ownership group Climax Stallions. “If the rest of his crop looks like this, we will all be having fun in 2021.”
