War Front's fee raised
to $80,000 for 2013

LEADING young American stallion War Front has had his fee raised to $80,000 at Claiborne Farm in Kentucky next season.

The Grade 2-winning son of Danzig stood for as little as $10,000 in 2010 but is now regarded as one of America's best young stallions after siring 15 stakes winners from his first four crops. They include the Grade 1 winners The Factor, Summer Soiree and Data Link as well as last week's Diamond Stakes winner Declaration Of War.

Claiborne stalwart Arch, whose 2012 tally of stakes winners includes Donn Handicap hero Hymn Book, has been raised to $40,000. However, his Breeders' Cup Classic-winning son Blame, whose first crop are yearlings next year, has been dropped to $30,000.

"Claiborne is committed to setting realistic stud fees and to capping the number of mares bred," said stallion director Bernie Sams.
