War Command notched another top-class victory for sire War Front with a hard-fought win in the Group 1 Dubai Dewhurst Stakes in Newmarket on Saturday. Joseph O'Brien piloted the promising 2-year-old to a 1 1/4-length victory for father and conditioner Aidan.
War Command was bred by part-owner Joseph Allen, who also owns War Front. He is owned in partnership with Allen, Mrs John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith.
The colt's performance was the third win for Aidan O'Brien in the Dewhurst. It is expected that War Command will be pointed toward the 2,000 Guineas next year, along with stablemate Australia.
Cable Bay (IRE) was second, followed by Outstrip (GB). The final time for the seven furlongs was 1:25.06.
