Java's War was a Grade 1 winner during his 19-race career, taking the 2013 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.

Grade 1 winner Java’s War has been retired from racing and will stand the 2017 breeding season at Colebrook Farm in Uxbridge, Ontario, for an advertised fee of $3,000 Canadian.

Java’s War, a 6-year-old son of War Pass, finished his on-track career with 3 wins in 19 starts for earnings of $713,807. He raced as an Ontario homebred for Charles Fipke, and was trained by Ken McPeek, Barclay Tagg, and Roger Attfield.

After winning his maiden in his second career start, Java’s War won the listed Sunday Silence Stakes at Louisiana Downs, and then finished third in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland. He returned at 3 to finish second in the Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby, and then came back to Keeneland to win the Grade 1 Blue Grass en route to a start in the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

Java’s War is out of the winning Rainbow Quest mare Java, whose five winners from six foals to race also includes stakes-placed Coffee Bar and Java’s Bourbon. Stakes-winning second dam Island Jamboree is the pivot point for runners including champion Fiji, French Group 2 winner Capri, French classic-placed Marcus Anronicus, and Grade 2-placed stakes winner Moment of Majesty.
