G1 winner Violence has certainly made his presence known as an elite sire of colts in recent years and this colt looks every bit the part of elite athlete. His dam is a young daughter of the late Bernardini, one of the nation’s most in-demand broodmare sires, who hails from a family that consistently produces tough, fast horses.

He was made eligible for the lucrative Virginia Residency Program and joined the Pletcher barn at Belmont Park at the end of August.
