Violence Heads to Palm Meadows

Violence, who remained undefeated following an impressive victory in Saturday’s Grade I, $750,000 CashCall Futurity, emerged from the victory in good shape, according to trainer Todd Pletcher.
 
“He cooled out real nice and is on a plane heading for Palm Meadows (in Florida),’’ Pletcher said by phone Sunday morning. “He left at 2:00 this morning.”
 
On the same plane were the D. Wayne Lukas-trained duo of Optimizer and Oxbow.  Optimizer finished third in the Grade II, $250,000 Hollywood Turf Cup, while Oxbow checked in fourth in the CashCall Futurity.
 
Paddy Gallagher reported that Turf Cup winner Grandeur “seems fine this morning.” 
 
“He’s about the same,’’ said Gallagher. “The horse is so laid back.  He’ll be leaving for a quarantine facility in a day or two.  He’s going back to Europe, so he’ll need 30 days in quarantine.”
