DR. SCHIVEL (Violence), a Grade I winner at two, will make his sophomore debut in this allowance/optional claimer sprint Friday at Santa Anita. Placing in a pair of tries to start his career with Beyers of only 57 and 52, the bay jumped way forward with an 86 when romping to a 5 3/4-length graduation last August at Del Mar, a race that included three next-out winners as well as future Grade II victor Spielberg (Union Rags). Bought into by Rancho Temescal and Red Baron's Barn after that effort, he was backed to 7-5 in the GI Runhappy Del Mar Futurity and obliged with a 1 3/4-length success. Transferred from the Luis Mendez barn to Mark Glatt since, Dr. Schivel drew the rail against four rivals in here and shows a lengthy local worktab, highlighted by a five-furlong spin in :59 2/5 (4/61) June 5.
