MOSLER

War Front - Gold Vault, by Arch
2011, Dark Bay , 16.2h · Entered Stud: 2017
Fee: $4,000 LFSN

Leading First and Second Crop Sire in the Mid-Atlantic in 2020 and 2021. $1.05 Million Yearling by War Front. Two-time $100,000 Stakes Winner. Ran a 102-Beyer. Won on Turf and Dirt.

As the racing season of 2022 gets underway, our young War Front son MOSLER is in a battle for LEADING SIRE in MARYLAND with veteran GREAT NOTION. As MOSLER’S runners mature, they are taking down lucrative purses across the country. His 3-year-old filly WATERWORKS won a $100,000 Allowance at Oaklawn Park in January, and Country Life-bred 4-year-old filly RESPONSE TIME won a rich Laurel allowance to end the month.

MOSLER is the property of syndicate. An A + nick to so many mares in the Mid-Atlantic region, MOSLER stands for $4,000 Live Foal.

Recap of his career: MOSLER won the $100,000 Laurel Dash Stakes in 1:08 1/5, defeating $3-million-earner BEN’S CAT. He also won the $100,000 Elusive Quality Stakes at Belmont Park.

A perfectly correct individual, MOSLER was bought by Mrs. Dilschneider for $1,050,000 at the 2012 Keeneland yearling sale. His half-sister, CONTESTED, sold for $2,300,000, after winning the G1 Acorn and G1 Test Stakes. Coolmore Stud bought his full brother, G2-placed AIR VICE MARSHALL, for $2,200,000 to top the 2014 Keeneland September sale.

Most War Fronts are “grass” horses, but MOSLER ran through his conditions on “dirt”, winning three of his first 6 starts on dirt in New York. Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott switched him to turf, the surface on which he won the Elusive Quality and the Laurel Dash.

His first crop of foals included two stakes winners: HELLO HOT ROD and MISS NONDESCRIPT. MOSLER is the Leading 3nd-Crop Sire in the Mid-Atlantic by stakes winners. His progeny win on dirt, grass, and synthetic, and they are particularly adept on a muddy track.  Country Life’s motto for this handsome son of War Front is: “MOSLER is the Man.”

Progeny
Mosler is known for stamping his foals - many have his heart-shaped star and a snip. His first crop of 70 two-year-olds race in 2020.
See pictures of his outstanding first-crop foals.

Mosler’s first winner was Heir Port, a look-alike son who dominated in a Monmouth Park maiden race first time out. He has sired 7 winners so far in 2020 and is the mid-Atlantic’s leading Freshman Sire.
