The colt born Jan. 6 was bred by McConnell Racing. Sadie's Song, a 10-year-old winning daughter of Unbridled's Song, has produced one winner from three starters.

In 2013 War Dancer won the Virginia Derby (G2T) at Colonial Downs and in 2014 he took the Louisville Handicap (G3T) at Churchill Downs. He finished second in the grade 1 Man o' War Stakes at Belmont Park in 2015. In four seasons of racing he won six of 30 starts—including three stakes—and earned more than $1.06 million.

War Dancer was bred in Kentucky by Cherry Valley Farm and Stuart S. Janney III. He is out of grade 2-placed winner Deed I Do, a daughter of Alydeed, who produced six other winners out of seven other foals of racing age.
