Notes: Favored Violence ran his record to a perfect 3-for-3 when notching his second stakes victory in the 1 1/16m $750,000 G1 CashCall Futurity at BHP on 12/15. With Javier Castellano again in the irons, trainer Todd Pletcher's son of Medaglia d'Oro enjoyed a stalking trip and caught front-runn ing Fury Kapcori late before edging away for a 1 ¼-l ength score and final time of 1:43.50. Before winning his first 2-turn attempt, the big, leggy Violence broke his maiden despite a slow start in his SAR debut then survived an inquiry to take the bumpy G2 Nashua Stakes at AQU on 11/4. Dell Ridge Farm bred the dark bay or brown colt in Kentucky from the Gone West mare Violent Beauty. His family includes champion older mare Sky Beauty, G1 Breeders' Cup Distaff winner Pleasant Home and multiple G1 victors Tale of Ekati, Point of Entry and Pine Island. Violence was foaled on March 21, 2010, and purchased by Black Rock Thoroughbr eds as a yearling for $600,000 at the Keeneland September 2011 sale. Violence joined Pletcher's PMM string in South Florida following his CashCall win and is being pointed to the Fountain of Youth Stakes at GP or the Risen Star at FG, both G2s on 2/23, to start his sophomore season.
