War of Will
Kentucky Derby Horse Profile
War of Will is a son of hot Sire War Front and out of the Sadler's Wells dam Visions of Clarity (IRE). The family line is very strong with this bay colt. Starting his racing career at Woodbine in Canada, the Southern campaigns have proven more fruitful for the Mark Casse trainee.
War of Will won the Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds, but won a sneaky maiden special weight at Churchill Downs prior to this start. He did finish a competitive 5th in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, 4th in the Dixiana Bourbon Stakes at Keeneland and ran scond in the Grade 1 Summer Stakes at Woodbine in September.
With a strong turf favorability in his pedigree, the win at Fair Grounds leaves no doubt that he can run on dirt as well.
