War Chant full-time at Yarradale

War Chant (USA) has just finished covering his last book in Kentucky ahead of a permanent move to Yarradale Stud.

The Danzig horse has shuttled to Western Australia for the last three years before Yarradale owner Ron Sayers made the move full-time with an offer to Three Chimneys Farm earlier this month.

War Chant (USA) celebrated with his 32nd stakes-winner in Italy on Saturday.  His colt Time Chant won the LR Criterium Partenopeo (1500m) in Naples by more than four lengths for trainer Stefano Botti.

Time Chant (2c War Chant – Snowfield by Tale of the Cat) has been placed on debut in Milan last month and then won his maiden back at San Siro on June 18.  He is the third foal of an unraced half-sister to Italian & USA stakes winner Sopran Mariduff (Persian Bold).

Second-dam Marina Duff (Caerleon) was a Group 3 winner of the valuable Premio Dormello in Milan.

War Chant was in spotlight at the 2014 Perth Magic Millions when his first Sunspeed yearlings averaged a record $97,000.  Yarradale has placed a $16,000 (plus gst) fee on his services this year.
