Peace And Justice, a three-time winning miler and the fastest son of top international sire, and emerging sire of sires, War Front standing in Pennsylvania, welcomed his first foal into the world last night. The filly was born during the second half of the Super Bowl at Northview Stallion Station's PA Division in Peach Bottom, Pennsylvania.
“She needs a good name,” said Steven W. Young, owner of the filly's sire Peace And Justice. “She's his first foal, she's a PA-bred, she's a Philly filly, and she was born during the Super Bowl.”
Fans are encouraged to submit suggested names via the stallion's website www.PeaceAndJusticePA.com by March 1st, at which time one name will be selected. The chosen name will be announced on the website, as well as the stallion's Facebook Page.
Movie Starlet is out of a stakes winner and from the immediate family of MISS CHARM CITY, a multiple stakes winner, including the Maryland Million Lassie Stakes.
“We're excited to see Peace And Justice's first foal hit the ground,” said Young. “We believe Peace And Justice has every chance to become the next great Pennsylvania stallion. We've supported him with a strong group of mares and will continue to do so. Plus, we're extending the huge bonus opportunity to breeders.”
According to the website, PeaceAndJusticePA.com, a bonus payment of $250,000.00 shall be paid to the official breeder of record with the Jockey Club of the first offspring of PEACE AND JUSTICE to win a non-restricted stake race during the period commencing January 1, 2020 and ending December 31, 2021. To be eligible for the bonus, the horse must be produced from one of the first eighty (80) mares bred to the Stallion in 2018 and must be declared the official winner of the non-restricted stake race and not be subsequently disqualified as the winner of the race.
Peace and Justice was purchased by David Ingordo for $425,000 at the 2011 Keeneland September yearling sale.
“He was a gorgeous yearling,” Ingordo said. “Strong, athletic walk. A really well-balanced War Front colt with a lot of scope. From the first day we put tack on him at Mayberry Farm we always felt he was special.”
On the racetrack, Peace and Justice ran three 95+ Beyer Speed Figures. He captured a Santa Anita allowance contest in dominant fashion by 5 ¼ lengths, and another one-mile contest going wire-to-wire in a swift 1:32.36. Throughout his career, Peace and Justice defeated multiple graded stakes winners, including Grade 1 winner Drill. He earned “TDN Rising Star” status and ran 3/5 seconds off Horse of the Year WISE DAN's course record at Santa Anita with a wire-to-wire mile victory in 1:32.36 (22.47, 44.55, 1:08.05, 1:20.20).
“I thought he was brilliant (on the racetrack),” trainer John Shirreffs said. “He was very focused and he had a lot of speed. Physically, he is well-balanced and very muscular.”
Out of the winning Smart Strike mare Strike the Sky, Peace and Justice is a half-brother to G2 winner Hudson Steele and the dam of G1-placed dirt runner My Man Sam. He is bred on the same proven Grade 1 cross as Peace and War, winner of the Darley Alcibiades (gr.I) and placed in the Cotillion Stakes (gr.I).
Peace and Justice stands for $3,500 LFSN at Northview Stallion Station's PA Division.
