Violence wins the 2012 Cash Call Futurity at Hollywood Betfair Park

The highlight of the Betfair Hollywood Park fall meeting is the $750,000 CashCall Futurity (G1), an early Triple Crown prep and a points scoring race in the new Road to the Kentucky Derby. A field of 11 two-year-olds contested this 1 1/16 mile Cushion Track contest on Saturday under overcast skies and temperatures in the high 50's before 7,186 fans. Violence, undefeated in 2 starts, was sent off as the 6-5 favorite off his win in the Nashua (G2) at Aqueduct. In to challenge him included 7-2 second choice He's Had Enough, a close second in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) last out, and 7-1 Really Mr. Greely, winner of the Hollywood Prevue (G3).

Really Mr. Greely was sent to the lead early by jockey Mike Smith through an opening quarter in 22.97 before 16-1 Fury Kapcori took over, getting the half in 46.07 and 3/4 in 1:10.90. Entering the stretch, Fury Kapcori continued to lead, but Violence, who stalked the pace in fifth early, passed the pacesetter inside the 1/8 pole to win going away by 1 1/4 lengths in 1:43.50. It was another 2 1/2 lengths from Fury Kapcori to late-running 14-1 Den's Legacy third.
