Champion War Emblem's First Winner

War Emblem, champion 3-year-old male of 2002 after winning the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) and Preakness Stakes (gr. I), was represented by his first winner Nov. 26 from his initial crop.

The Japanese stallion's son, Clan Emblem, won at Tokyo by eight lengths about a month after finishing second in his debut there. Bred by Katsumi Yoshida's Northern Farm, Clan Emblem races for Sunday Racing.

War Emblem, who at certain times has shown an unwillingness to cover mares, has just two registered 2-year-olds. There are about 40 yearlings in his second crop, according to the Racing Post. War Emblem (Our Emblem--Sweetest Lady, by Lord At War) was exported to stand at the Yoshida family's Shadai Stallion Station.
