Multiple graded stakes winner and millionaire Warrior’s Charge will enter stud in 2023 at Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions LLC in Stillwater. The 6-year-old son of Munnings will stand his first season for $5,000.

Campaigned for five seasons by Ten Strike Racing and Madaket Stables, Warrior’s Charge won six of 22 starts with three seconds and four thirds and earnings of $1,016,690.

Trained by Brad Cox, Warrior’s Charge finished fourth in the 2019 Preakness Stakes before victories as a 4-year-old in the Grade 3 Razorback Handicap at Oaklawn Park and Grade 3 Philip H. Iselin Stakes at Monmouth Park. He placed in two other stakes and finished fourth in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap in 2020 at Belmont Park.

Bred by Al Shaquab Racing and out of the stakes-placed Broken Vow mare Battling Brook, Warrior’s Charge is a half-brother to the stakes-placed Warrior’s Battle and a full-brother to the unraced 2-year-old Warrior’s Vow who sold for $200,000 at last year’s Keeneland September yearling sale.

“Warriors Charge really was an exceptional talent,” Liz Crow, manager for Ten Strike Racing, told BloodHorse. “He showed brilliance in the mornings and ran big races in the Grade 1 Met Mile and Grade 1 Preakness as well as being a multiple graded stakes winner. He was sound and consistent and is a phenomenal horse physically. He provides the only opportunity to breed to a son of the great Munnings in New York and based on his physical, I am excited to see his progeny at future sales and races.”

Crow added that Ten Strike would support Warrior’s Charge, who is available for inspection.
