Blue Grass Stakes Next for Java's War

Tampa Bay Derby (gr. II) runner-up Java's War, who was being seriously considered for the UAE Derby (UAE-II) March 30, will stay home and point instead for the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland Apr. 13, trainer Kenny McPeek said during a National Thoroughbred Racing Association teleconference March 19.

Java's War, owned and bred by Charles Fipke, turned in a huge run from last in the field of nine at Tampa to be beaten three lengths by the 2-5 favorite Verrazano, while finishing 4 1/4 lengths ahead of third-place finisher Falling Sky.

Following the race, McPeek said he and Fipke were looking at the $2 million UAE Derby, which would have made it unlikely he could have come back and run in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), considering how long it normally takes American horses to recover from such a trip.
