Volatile couldn’t have been more impressive as he took the Aristides on his Stakes debut at Churchill Downs.
The Violence colt owned by Phoenix Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm displayed a truly devastating turn of foot to record a victory by eight lengths on Saturday, June 6.
“Obviously he’s a tremendous talent from a very significant family,” Said a visually delighted trainer Steve Asmussen post-race. “The second dam to him is Lady Tak, who was actually our first millionaire and an extremely significant horse to our stables development. He has her freak-like ability. She was the filly that won the Test and we’re hoping off the back of this he shows the same affinity to the Saratoga course that she did. We are definitely expecting to step him up to Graded Stakes Company from here.”
Volatile was awarded a Beyer figure of 112 for the victory the highest posted over the weekend.
