Violette Pair Work for Holy Bull

Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s 3-year-old colt Leave of Absence worked a sharp half-mile in :48 flat Jan. 20 at Palm Meadows as he prepares for a possible run in the $400,000 Holy Bull Stakes (gr. III) to be run at Gulfstream Park Jan. 30.

“He worked very well and ran a good race in the Spectacular Bid (rallied for second),” said trainer Rick Violette. “He just confirmed what we thought of him and it’s possible we’ll run him, but we also have Rescind the Trade eligible for the race. He works tomorrow morning. We’ll see how that goes and then make a decision.”

Leave of Absence is a son of Harlan's Holiday purchased for $145,000 at the Fasig-Tipton February 2-year-old sale and made two starts last year, finishing third in his debut at Belmont Park in late September and breaking his maiden at Aqueduct on Nov. 7. He came back to rally from seventh after a half-mile in the six-furlong Spectacular Bid Stakes Jan. 8 at Gulfstream to finish second by 1 1/4 lengths.

Rescind the Trade is a Put It Back colt and also ran twice last year, winning his debut in late October at Parx Racing and an ‘a other than’ allowance race going one mile and 70 yards around two turns on the inner track at Aqueduct on Dec. 19.
