The first mares have been confirmed in-foal to Grade I winner No Parole (Violence), Whispering Oaks Farm and Coteau Grove Farms announced Wednesday.
Among the early mares scanned in-foal include Coteau Grove’s Naive Enough (Street Sense), a full-sister to stakes- winner/Grade I-placed Light the City, who in turn is the dam of Grade I-placed Illumination, who sold for $875,000 as a broodmare prospect last year at Fasig-Tipton November.
“A mare of the quality of Naive Enough is indicative of the kind of mare we are breeding to No Parole to support him,” said Coteau Grove’s bloodstock advisor Andrew Cary. “She was a close fourth in the GII Golden Rod S. as a 2-year-old and is big, good-looking mare with a huge pedigree. She has already produced two winners and her 2-year-old is training very well in Florida right now. We have several stakes winners and stakes producers booked to No Parole and will continue to support him. Whispering Oaks is a tremendous partner in the horse and is also supporting him strongly. He has also been very well received by breeders throughout Louisiana.”
No Parole, winner of the 2020 GI Woody Stephens S., captured six of 13 starts and earned $369,866. He is standing his first season at an advertised fee of $3,500, stands and nurses.
