It was a new stakes winner for WAR FRONT on Saturday when Cadre du Noir won the Listed YLC City Tattersalls Club Cup in Australia.
Racing over 1 ½ miles on the turf, Cadre du Noir had the lead coming into the stretch and never looked back, registering his first stakes victory by 5 ½ lengths.
Trained by Ciaron Maher and David Eustace for Phoenix Thoroughbred, the U.S.-bred Cadre du Noir was winning his second straight race after starting off the season with a quarter length victory in early August.
A $1.1 million Keeneland September yearling purchase by Kerri Radcliffe in 2017, Cadre du Noir started his career in England where he broke his maiden before moving to Australia in 2020.
The gelding is a half-brother to multiple graded stakes winner Parranda out of a half-sister to Canadian champion Sisterly Love. That mare is the dam of stakes winner Deep Monster and Group 3-placed Danon Aller.
Cadre du Noir was the first of three stakes winners for WAR FRONT on Saturday with those coming in three different countries. He is also the third Australian stakes winner for WAR FRONT, led by dual Group 1 winner Homesman.
