Client Success: Violence Filly Ridden Out While Much The Best




LASTCHANCEFORLOVE (f, 3, Violence–Awe Hush, by Awesome Again), a sharp front-running debut winner at Fair Grounds Feb. 21, showed speed and tired to finish a well-beaten eighth in her first try versus winners at Gulfstream Apr. 11. Given a 7-2 chance to get back on track here, the dark bay Violence filly vied for the early lead while in the three path and was pressed through an opening quarter in :22.69. She began to shake clear into mid-turn then widened into the lane and was ridden out by leading jockey Deshawn Parker to the wire while much the best by 4 1/2 lengths.

The winner’s dam is also represented by a 2-year-old Wicked Strong filly, a yearling colt by Not This Time and a filly by Accelerate of this year.
