Bidding is now open for the Fire At Will Flash Sale,” a one-horse auction on Fasig-Tipton Digital of Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) champion Fire At Will. The five-year-old son of Declaration of War is consigned as a stallion prospect by Bluewater Sales, agent.

Bidding will close this coming Wednesday, January 11 at 2 PM ET.

Fire At Will broke his maiden at two in stakes company in the With Anticipation S. at Saratoga. Next out, the colt scored a two-length gate-to-wire victory in the Pilgrim S. (G2) on Belmont’s inner turf.

In just his fourth career start, Fire At Will captured the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) over a stacked field of 13 other highly rated juveniles from around the world. After stalking the pace throughout, he put his head in front at the top of the stretch and then drew off to a three-length victory – the largest winning margin in the history of the race.

A three-time winner at two, Fire At Will is a Grade 1 winner and multiple graded stakes winner on the turf and a stakes winner on the dirt. He earned $675,932 on the track.

From the Danzig sire-line, Fire At Will also descends from a remarkable sire-producing female family that traces back to blue hen producer Rough Shod II.  More than 70 descendants of Rough Shod II have sired stakes winners, including Sadler’s Wells, Nureyev, Fairy King, Stormy Atlantic, and Blame.

"This is, perhaps, the most powerful stallion family in the world today,” said noted pedigree expert Alan Porter.

Added Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton Director of Digital Sales: “Fire At Will has the credentials to be a successful sire in the United States or abroad.  He’s a Breeders’ Cup winning juvenile from an elite sire line and from one of the top sire-producing female families in the stud book.  On top of all that, he is an outstanding individual physically.  Stud farms from around the globe should give him a serious look.”

Fire At Will is available for viewing beginning this Saturday, January 7 at Bluewater Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. 

Prospective buyers may schedule an appointment for viewing through Fire At Will’s auction page on Fasig-Tipton Digital or by contacting Meg Levy at (859) 619-7190 or
