Stone Farm: For half of a century.
If you take care of the land,
the land will take care of you.
We’re trying to raise you a good horse.
We sell only what we raise.
As the flat season kicks into gear in Europe, few events have done more to whet the appetite than Aidan O’Brien’s announcement that he is likely to saddle only one colt in the G1 QIPCO 2,000 Guineas. It is not unusual for O’Brien to run several colts (or fillies) in a Classic, so there is one, and only one, obvious conclusion to draw from his statement: Air Force Blue (War Front) must be streets ahead of his peers within his own stable. If that is indeed the case, then he could be a very special horse indeed, a horse with the potential to light up the season.
