Violencia turned back an odds-on Chad Brown firster and finished full of run to earn ‘TDN Rising Star’ honors at Gulfstream Saturday. Picked up for an even $100,000 at Keeneland September, the bay showed a steady series of breezes for trainer Rodolphe Brisset at Payson Park, highlighted by a half-mile gate move in :48 2/5 (2/22) Jan. 7. Part of a three-way scrum for second favoritism behind e Five Racing Thoroughbreds’ 9-10 Palomita (Into Mischief), Violencia broke as a 27-5 chance and beat the sharp-starting heavy favorite to the punch to dictate terms through a :22.30 quarter. That one crept closer passing a :45.11 half, but Violencia made short work of her rival once turning for home, drawing clear under Jose Ortiz to a good-looking 7 1/2-length success. Palomita held for second. The victress is a half to He’s So Fine (Purge), GSP, $451,468; and Auntjenn (Uncle Mo), GSP, $178,673. Her dam foaled a filly by Shanghai Bobby last term before visiting Tiznow.
