THE handsome grey champion sprinter Lethal Force has inherited his coat colour from his sire Dark Angel, whose other Group 1 stars include such speed merchants as the July Cup hero Harry Angel, the Prix de l’Abbaye winner Battaash and the flying filly Mecca’s Angel, twice successful in the Nunthorpe Stakes. There is also plenty of speed in his pedigree on his dam’s side, as she is a half-sister to Flanders, the listed winning dam of champion sprinter G Force and the grandam of champion filly Flotilla, a Group 1 winner in France and a Breeders’ Cup heroine in the USA.
