The multiple Graded stakes performer by Northern Afleet has placed three times in four stakes starts this year, including the $750,000 Louisiana Derby (G2) and $400,000 Risen Star S. (G2). He was unplaced in the Kentucky Derby (G1) on May 2nd, after being seriously bothered at the break. 

War Story breezed five furlongs in 1:01 2/5 at Churchill Downs on May 26 for trainer Tom Amoss. Clockers caught the chestnut in splits of :12 4/5, :25 2/5, and :37 4/5, while galloping out six furlongs in 1:14.

Owned by Christopher Dunn, Glenn Ellis and Loooch Racing Stable, War Story has compiled a record of 6-2-2-1 and $243,600, with wins at seven furlongs and a mile. The Kentucky-bred has twice been runner-up in Graded stakes at 8 1/2 furlongs, the distance of the Ohio Derby.

Northern Afleet has now sired 78 stakes winners, 143 stakes horses and earners $57,700,000 worldwide. He is standing the 2015 season at Taylor Made for $7,500 Live Foal.
