The Dynasty sired Cape Guineas winner Act Of War has two members of his first crop in Rathmor’s draft- a filly (Lot 44) from the same female line as major G1 winners Manila, Stately Don and General Quarters, and a colt (Lot 174) from the family of international group winners CD Europe, Iveagh Gardens, and Truth Or Dare.
