Two-time group I winner Declaration of War will retire from racing to stand at Coolmore's headquarters in Fethard, County Tipperary, Ireland following his final start in the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) Nov. 2.
The leading international sire died of natural causes at Coolmore Stud in Ireland.
Dual Breeders' Cup hero High Chaparral, runaway Lockinge Stakes winner Hawk Wing, and international sprinting sensation Choisir will be joined on the new Coolmore stallion roster by Catcher In The Rye, Spartacus, and Statue Of Liberty.
