Editorial Returns From Eventful Stay In Peru To Stand In Maryland

Editorial, a half-brother to top sire Uncle Mo, has returned to Anchor and Hope Farm in Port Deposit Maryland for the 2021 breeding season after the COVID-19 pandemic kept him in Peru longer than expected, BloodHorse reports.

The 7-year-old son of War Front shipped to Haras San Pablo in the summer of 2019 for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season, and he was scheduled to return to Maryland to stand what would have been his third season in 2020. However, logistical hangups with quarantine stalled his return in January of last year. Then, once those hoops were cleared, the initial global shutdown at the onset of COVID-19 crippled the cargo shipment industry and created a shortage of available cargo planes, leading to the decision to keep the horse in Peru for the year.

Editorial cleared quarantine for the upcoming breeding season in January. His first foals are 2-year-olds of 2021.

Editorial won one of two starts during his on-track career, finishing second by a head on debut, then charging on the outside in his second start to prevail by a neck. Both races came over the turf at Gulfstream Park for the Coolmore partnership and trainer Todd Pletcher.

The stallion will stand for an advertised fee of $2,500 during the upcoming breeding season, with a “Ship and Win” incentive of $500 for the owners of mares who make their first visit to editorial in 2021.
