Grade 3 Winner Legends Of War To Enter Stud In England

Legends of War, a Grade 3-winning son of Scat Daddy, has been retired from racing, and he will enter stud for LM Stallions at March Hare Farm in England for the 2021 breeding season, Racing Post reports.

The 4-year-old from the final crop of Triple Crown-producing sire Scat Daddy will stand for an advertised fee of 6,000 British Pounds (US$7,978). Luke Gedge-Gibson of LM Stallions told the Racing Post that Legends of War would be the first son of Scat Daddy to stand in the U.K.

Legends of War won four of 16 starts during his on-track career for earnings of $491,240. He began his racing career in Europe, winning on debut as a juvenile by four lengths. He was soon moved up to group stakes competition, and he finished the season as a Group 2-placed runner for trainer John Gosden, having finished second in the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes.

The colt was moved to the U.S. at three and placed in the barn of trainer Doug O’Neill. He quickly picked up placings in the listed William Walker Stakes and black type Desert Code stakes, but he earned his biggest career victory in the fall, when he won the G3 Franklin-Simpson Stakes at Kentucky Downs. That effort led to a start in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita Park, where he finished a wide-running 12th.

Legends of War raced twice this year as a 4-year-old, ending his career in Saudi Arabia with a start on the Saudi Cup undercard.

Bred in Kentucky by DP Racing, Legends of War is out of the unplaced Rahy mare Madera Dancer.

He brought $200,000 as a yearling at the 2017 Fasig-Tipton Turf Showcase, then he was pinhooked for 900,000 guineas (US$1,350,405) at the following year’s Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale.
