Grade 1 Winner No Parole’s First Foal Has Arrived

(Sunset, La.) – Grade 1 winner No Parole’s first foal, a colt, was born January 9 in Louisiana.

Bred by Coteau Grove Farms, the foal is out of the well-bred Street Sense mare Naive Enough. He is a half-brother to the promising stakes-placed 3 year old Tumbarumba, who recently ran second in the Louisiana Champions Day Juvenile Stakes on December 10.

“We are so excited obviously as the breeders of No Parole himself, to also be the breeders of his first foal. He is a beautiful foal and full of energy this morning,” said Coteau Grove Farms managing partner Hunter Myers.

Coteau Grove Farms Bloodstock advisor Andrew Cary said, “We have supported No Parole with some very nice mares and will continue to do so this year and beyond. No Parole had truly elite speed and his sire Violence continues to produce top level horses every year, like Grade 1 winners Volatile and Forte among many others. He’s the only son of Violence standing in Louisiana.”

“This is a strong-bodied colt and a great advertisement for his sire. We have several more No Parole babies coming this year and are really looking forward to them. He’s off to a great start,” said assistant farm manager Jacob Cyprian.

Raced by Maggi Moss and Greg Tramontin and trained by Tom Amoss, No Parole won the Woody Stephens S. (G1) in 2020 among his 6 wins in 13 career starts. He stands in partnership at Carrol Castille’s Whispering Oaks Farm in Carencro, Louisiana for $3,500 live foal stands and nurses.
