Grade 1 winner Sailor’s Valentine is being offered in foal to leading sire War Front. His offspring averaged $579,643 at the 2019 Keeneland September Yearling Sale and included a $2.9 million colt.
The daughter of Mizzen Mast proved to be among the best of her generation by defeating top fillies in Keeneland’s Central Bank Ashland (G1). She tracked the leaders through the first half-mile then surged to the front to defeat future Grade 1 winner Daddy’s Lil Darling by a half-length.
Sailor’s Valentine is out of the winning Tale of the Cat mare Sortilege, whose half-sister has produced five stakes horses. Other family members include multiple Grade 1 winner Coup de Fusil.
