It was a second career Group 3 victory for WAR FRONT’s Random Harvest in England on Saturday with a victory in the Valiant Stakes (G3) at Ascot.
Keen to get the job started, Random Harvest went straight to the front under Saffie Osborne to take up pacemaking duties. She kept that spot throughout the one-mile race on good to soft turf with Osborne not having to ask for much until the final furlong.
It was inside that furlong that another runner cut into her lead, but Random Harvest was able to keep her neck in front at the line for her fourth career win and 12th top three finish in 18 starts.

Random Harvest is the sixth stakes winner of the year for WAR FRONT and one of 15 stakes performers for the stallion this season as well.
