, 2yo, 7f, 1:22 4/5, ft.+VIOLENCE (c, 2, Medaglia d'Oro--Violent Beauty, by Gone West)
, a $600,000 KEESEP yearling purchase, took all the support at the windows and went postward as the 4-5 choice in this unveiling. The big colt, a great grandson of the brilliant Sky Beauty, broke a bit awkwardly but recovered nicely to press early under John Velazquez as Titletown Five (Tiznow) laid down a legitimate half-mile in :45.14. That foe proved tough to get past in the stretch, but Violence kept on plugging away on the outside and was able to get a neck in front in the shadow of the wire. Fellow firster Orb (Malibu Moon) spotted the field several lengths after rearing at the start from post one, but put in an impressive late run to collect show honors at 29-1. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $48,000. Click for the brisnet.com chart or Video, sponsored by Taylor Made Sales.
