  • Stakes-placed Command Post, a son of Harlan’s Holiday, retired to WynOaks Farm

    Command Post, a stakes-placed son of Harlan’s Holiday, has been retired and will stand the upcoming breeding season at WynOaks Farm in Pennsylvania. He will stand for $2,000 S&N.

    Campaigned by Gary and Mary West and trained by Jason Servis, Command Post hit the board in all but one of his seven starts. He won three times and finished a troubled third to multiple stakes winner Phat Man and Graded stakes-placed Talk Logistics in the 2017 Long Branch Stakes at Monmouth Park en route to earnings of $104,110. 

    “We are excited to add Command Post to our stallion roster,” said WynOaks Farm’s Barbara Wheeler. “He has an exceptional pedigree and he has a lot to offer Pennsylvania’s breeders. We believe he’s going to be very well received.”

    By Grade 1 winner and $3.6 million earner Harlan’s Holiday, the sire of nearly 100 stakes winners and six champions, including Shanghai Bobby, Command Post hails from a female family rich in black type. He is produced from the Lemon Drop Kid mare Danzig’s Humor who is also the dam of One Way, Champion 2-Year-Old Colt in Venezuela, and additional winner Down by Law who produced multiple stakes-placed Angel at War. Danzig’s Humor is out of Grade 2 winner and Grade 1-placed Danzig’s Beauty, a half-sister to stakes-placed Miss Importance and the dam of multiple Graded stakes winner and influential sire Distorted Humor.
