Violence was represented by a pair of winners on the high-profile Stars of Tomorrow program at Churchill Downs, led by Pennsylvania-bred Cosmic Burst, who outfooted Grade 1-placed Princess Warrior and stakes-placed Queen Mum in a salty optional-claiming event. Violent Storm won a maiden special weight on turf on that program, and later that night, Whatwasithinking broke his maiden at Golden Gate Fields. That trio of winners helped push Violence’s season bankroll to $1,177,825 with 23 total winners through Sunday’s racing.

WinStar Farm resident Overanalyze narrowly leads the freshman sire standings by both earnings ($1,530,140) and winners (25).
