ANCIENT PEACE (f, 3, War Front–Deceptive Vision {GSW & GISP-Can, GSW-USA, $501,441}, by A.P. Indy), off the board in her one-mile turf debut at Del Mar last December, graduated by a front-running 4 1/4 lengths going that same distance over the Santa Anita lawn Dec. 30 for Mike Ryan and trainer Graham Motion, just days before selling for $650,000 to Travis Boersma’s Boardshorts Stables at this year’s Keeneland January sale. Ryan had purchased the well-bred filly for $180,000 at the 2021 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale. Favored at 4-5 in this field shortened to five when the race came off the turf, the dark bay filly jumped right out to the early lead. She was well in hand while loose through fractions of :22.84 and :46.06 and was some 10 lengths in front entering the far turn. The favorite sailed down the lane as a much-the-best winner under a motionless Flavien Prat. Chloe’s Crown (Declaration of War) was second. Deceptive Vision has a 2-year-old filly by War Front, who was sent to Japan after selling for $400,000 to Masahiro Miki at last year’s Keeneland September sale. The mare also has a yearling colt by American Pharoah who sold for $150,000 to the Albaugh Family Stables at last year’s Keeneland November sale. A full-sister to champion Eye of the Leopard, the 13-year-old mare, who sold for $900,000 to Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa as part of the Sam-Son dispersal at the 2021 Keeneland January sale, was bred to Uncle Mo last year.
