Peace and Justice , a three-time winning miler and a near record-performing son of top international stallion and emerging sire of sires War Front , will relocate to Blackstone Farm near Pine Grove, Pa., for the 2021 breeding season, the farm announced Nov. 20. He will stand for $3,500.
The 10-year-old freshman sire has been represented this year by Like a Saltshaker, who won the Fitz Dixon Jr. Memorial Juvenile Stakes at Presque Isle Downs and was second in the Awad Stakes at Belmont Park. He is being pointed toward the Dec. 7 $100,000 Pennsylvania Nursery Stakes at Parx Racing.
On the racetrack, Peace and Justice earned four consecutive Equibase Speed Ratings exceeding 100, including a Santa Anita Park allowance optional claiming contest in which he earned a 111 rating. In that race, a wire-to-wire mile victory on the turf in 1:32.36, he was three-fifths of a second off Vyjack's course record and just shy of Tourist 's time of 1:31.71 in the 2016 Breeders' Cup Mile (G1T).
Out of the winning Smart Strike mare Strike the Sky, Peace and Justice is a half brother to grade 2 winner Hudson Steele (Johannesburg) and stakes-placed Lauren Byrd (Arch), who is the dam of group 3 winner Hakam and Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G1) runner-up My Man Sam.
