Ivanjica was bred by her owner Jacques Wertheimer at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky. She was sired by Epsom Derby winner Sir Ivor and out of the mare Astuce by the important French sire Vieux Manoir. The filly was named for the town of Ivanjica in the Moravica District of Serbia.
In 1975 Ivanjica won the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and looked likely to start favourite for the Prix de Diane before the race was abandoned owing to industrial action. In autumn she won the Prix Vermeille and finished third to Youth in the Washington, D.C. International Stakes.
Retired to broodmare service, she produced offspring that had limited success in racing. She died in 1992 after producing six foals.
Ivanjica has the unique distinction of having had her portrait painted by Andy Warhol.
