McPeek's "War Horses" Breeze at Saratoga

Trainer Ken McPeek's "War Horses" - Java's War and War Dancer - breezed over the Oklahoma training track on Sunday, with both colts under consideration for the Grade 1 Travers on August 24.

 

Java's War, winner of the Grade 1 Blue Grass in April, breezed three furlongs in 37.12 seconds and will make his next start in either the $100,000 Stroll overnight stakes at 1 3/16 miles on the turf on Wednesday or in the Travers. McPeek said the decision will be made by owner Charles Fipke, who also campaigns Travers contender Golden Soul, trained by Dallas Stewart.

 

"It was just to let him stretch his legs," said McPeek. "He went fantastic. We're going to make a decision on whether he runs on Wednesday. I have to speak to Mr. Fipke about that detail. We may still very well run in the Travers. He worked well today, and I'm happy with that."

 

Grade 2 Virginia Derby winner War Dancer breezed five furlongs in 1:03.22 in company with stablemate So Raise Yourglass.

 

"It was just a nice maintenance five-eighths," said McPeek, who trains War Dancer for Magdalena Racing. "The riders went off a little slow the first three-eighths, but they finished up and galloped out nicely."
