Last year he won the Woody Stephens Stakes (G1) on Belmont Stakes Day.
Maggi Moss and Greg Tramontin’s grade 1 winner No Parole has been retired after being eased and finishing last in the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Sprint Stakes Dec. 11 at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.
The victory was the third consecutive distant finish for the 4-year-old Violence colt. As a younger horse, the Tom Amoss trainee won five of his first six races, including the 2020 Woody Stephens Stakes Presented by Claiborne Farm (G1) on Belmont Stakes Day. After that victory, he went 1-for-7, winning only the Louisiana Bred Premier Sprint Stakes at Delta Downs in February.
“No Parole has been a once in a lifetime horse,” Moss tweeted shortly after Saturday’s race. “He has trained super, sound, healthy—went into the race great—when a horse doesn’t want to do it anymore—we honor that and retire him 100% sound and happy.”
