Has anyone seen him? I have not seen him in person but my broodmare manager where I send my mares has looked at him and liked him. He seems like a bargain to me as a G1 winning son of War Front, from the family of War Pass (who seemed poised to be a solid stallion if not for his early demise) for $6,500. Any thoughts?

The only thing I heard about him is his size and that he's typical for the Danzig line. I won't be in Lexington until after my mare foals, but I think I'm going to take a look at him. I can ask one of my friends who I think has seen him, how big she thinks he is. Otherwise I've heard he's nice. I know one person who is in a share the upside kind of program, breed twice and get a lifetime breeding right.

I decided to go ahead and book him. I talked to Pope a couple days ago and they already have over 100 mares to him. My mare is a huge mare that throws big and correct and her family loves anything Danzig so hopefully they'll compliment each other.

Gonna bump this to ask what's up with his babies? So far I keep seeing RNAs, no sales. The highest RNA was $37,000 but mostly it's no bid or barely a bid. They didn't seem that rough when I watched them turning in the ring on the FT July Select Yearling Sale live stream. This can't be a good sign for him which is a shame. I don't understand why such low demand.

I think it might be called "lack of support" - ie Jack Milton's connections are not stepping up and buying any of his babies so really no one else is either.
