First Reported Foal for Fire At Will

The first reported foal by Sequel Stallions’ Fire At Will was born last week at Fort Christopher’s Thoroughbreds in Fort Edward.

Bred by Horse Haven Racing, the colt is the first foal out of the unraced 4-year-old Practical Joke mare Marital Joy. Marital Joy comes from the family of Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf winner Shared Account, dam of Eclipse Award finalist Sharing, the TDN Rising Star and winner of the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

Fire At Will, a 6-year-old son of Declaration of War out of the Kitten’s Joy mare Flirt, stands for $5,000 at Sequel New York in Hudson. He bred 42 mares in his first season at Sequel.

“The colt has a lot of scope to him. He has a good hind end, like his sire, and is overall very well balanced. This is exactly what we were hoping to see out of the first crop for Fire At Will,” said Sequel’s Becky Thomas

Campaigned by Three Diamonds Farm and trained by Mike Maker, Fire At Will won three of six starts and earned $675,932. Fire At Will won the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf in 2020 at Keeneland Race Course and the off-the-turf With Anticipation Stakes at Saratoga Race Course and Grade 3 Pilgrim on the turf at Belmont Park that same season.

Fire At Will’s dam, Flirt, sold in foal to Lemon Drop Kid for $500,000 at the 2020 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November mixed sale. He’s the first foal out of the mare, who is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Decorated Invader (by Declaration of War), stakes winner Jubliant Girl and stakes-placed Cabral.
