Talk Veuve to Me (Violence) left little to doubt as her connections will pop the champagne upon her dominating graduation and being named the newest ‘TDN Rising Star’ at Fair Grounds Sunday. Returning from more than a seven-month layoff after a runner-up performance at Ellis Park Aug. 12, the 2-1 favorite broke best of the field and quickly opened up a length on her rivals through a :22.36 first quarter. She was still in hand turning for home and unleashed a strong kick inside the quarter pole to pull away from the competition on her way to a geared down, 11 1/4-length score. After RNA’ing as a weanling for $45,000 at the Keeneland November sale, she was purchased the following year for $20,000 at Keeneland September. She posted a furlong breeze in :10 1/5 at OBS March, but RNA’d for $95,000. The victress hails from the same family as MGSW and G1SP-Eng Mountain Kingdom (Exceller) and GISW Cool (Bold Bidder). The winner’s dam, Biblical Point (Point Given) is a full-sister to SW and MGSP Winning Point. Her dam also has a juvenile colt by Shackleford.
