The Brothers War celebrates black type success

The Brothers War celebrated his first black type success when Ancestry claimed the G H Mumm Century Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on Oaks Day.

Ancestry (pictured) led throughout in the Listed event to remain unbeaten this campaign, notching his fourth win in succession in convincing fashion.

The four-year-old is from the first crop of the superbly bred The Brothers War, who secured the Listed Chantilly Prix Sigy among his three wins.

Ancestry has now won eight of his 13 outings and more than $430,000 in prizemonmey.

Connections are considering a Group 1 tilt at the time-honoured Oakleigh Plate in the autumn.

Ancestry is the second black type performer for Kooringal Stud’s prolific winner-getter Maltese.

Maltese has also produced the Group 2 Skyline Stakes victor Diamond Tathagata among her five winners from as many to race.

The Tale Of The Cat mare’s dam Marwell Lady also won at Listed level.

Bluff ‘N’ Bluster is another galloper from The Brothers War’s initial crop who is showing considerable promise.

The Jason Coyle-trained was in the spotlight when winning on Goulburn Cup Day on Wednesday.

Bluff ‘N’ Bluster has emphasised his consistency by finishing in the top three at nine of his 14 starts.

The Brothers War, a son of War Front, is standing this season at Kooringal alongside the dual Group 1 winner Prized Icon.
