Sire: War Front
Dam: Deed I Do, by Alydeed
Breeder: Cherry Valley Farm, LLC. & Stuart S. Janney, III LLC.
War Dancer took three tries to break his maiden but once he figured out racing, he turned into a consistent performer. After two straight wins, he finished third to graded stakes winners Noble Tune and Admiral Kitten in the American Turf (G2). War Dancer earned his first graded stakes victory in the Virginia Derby (G2) against Charming Kitten and Jack Milton in July before switching back to dirt for the Travers Stakes.
War Dancer is by red-hot sire War Front out of the Alydeed mare Deed I Do, who was stakes placed during her career. He comes from the family of multiple graded stakes winner Raja's Revenge and in My Cap.
