Climax Stallions will stand Editorial, a winning half-brother to champion Uncle Mo, the nation’s top young sire the past three years, at Roland Farm in Warwick, Md., in 2018. A stud fee of $3,500 has been set for the son of world-renowned sire War Front.

Editorial retires after winning an allowance on the turf at 7 1/2 furlongs at Gulfstream Park this year at 3. He is the sixth winner from eight foals for his stakes-placed dam Playa Maya, a daughter of Arch who sold for $1.65 million at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Mixed sale in 2010.

Uncle Mo, a foal of 2008 by Indian Charlie, took home the Eclipse Award in 2010 after winning all three of his starts, including the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Champagne Stakes. On the board in four of his five starts at 3, all stakes, he retired with five wins from eight starts and earnings of $1,606,000. At stud, he has led the nation’s freshman, second-crop and third-crop sires lists, and his 36 stakes winners include champion 2-year-old and Kentucky Derby-G1 winner Nyquist.

Editorial’s sire War Front has 21 stakes winners around the world this year, five in Grade/Group 1 company, led by European 2-year-old U S Navy Flag and 3-year-old filly Roly Poly. As a sire of sires, he is represented by The Factor (top-10 second-crop sire with seven 2017 stakes winners) and top-ranked freshman sires Declaration of War and Data Link.
