No Parole Achieves First Grade 1 Win for Coteau Grove

Son of Violence took the Woody Stephens Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park

 

When No Parole crossed the Belmont Park finish line 3 3/4 lengths clear June 20 in the Woody Stephens Stakes Presented by Claiborne Farm (G1), the Violence  colt helped fulfill a dream for his breeders almost a decade in the making.

“It was an awesome day,” said bloodstock agent Andrew Cary, who helped the Violence  colt’s breeders, Keith and Ginger Myers, build their Louisiana-based breeding operation beginning in 2014. The Myers, who own and operate Coteau Grove Farms in Louisiana, began racing in 2008 before re-configuring their strategy to prioritize breeding.

No Parole’s victory in Saturday’s seven-furlong test marked the first top-level score for the Myers’ program which now boasts a band of over 25 broodmares.

Louisiana-bred Gives Violence Second Rising Star of the Day

9th at FG , Alw, $46000 (6f) Winner: No Parole, c, 3 by Violence

Maggi Moss’s No Parole (Violence), a 14 1/4-length debut winner here Dec. 15–good for a 90 Beyer Speed Figure–again proved too much for his Louisiana-bred foes to handle as he romped to become the third ‘TDN Rising Star’ of the day and second by Hill ‘n’ Dale’s Violence. Off at prohibitive 1-5 odds, the $75,000 KEESEP yearling seized command early in the wet going, clicked off splits of :21.79 and :44.45 and cruised home all by his lonesome with just a couple of reminders before being geared down late to canter under the line 13 1/4 lengths to the good in 1:10.24. Palvera (My Pal Charlie) was best of the rest.

The winner’s dam was a stakes-winning turf sprinter at Penn National and hails from the extended female family of graded winners License Fee (Black Tie Affair {Ire}) and Greeley’s Galaxy (Mr. Greeley). She has a short yearling filly by Connect.
