The first graded stakes of the meet came up mighty tough and Whipsaw City will invade from New York to take on some very accomplished fillies and mares in the Grade 3 $100,000 Violet Stakes to be run at 1 1/16 mile over the turf course. 

            “My filly is doing really well right now,” said trainer Chad Brown when reached by phone Sunday morning. “You can throw out her last race. Her two races on the turf were good and that’s why she’s in this race.” 

            Last out on April 12, the 4-year-old filly owned by Martin Schwartz faded in a seven-furlong outing on Keeneland’s Polytrack in the Grade 1 Vinery Madison Stakes, which was won by Groupie Doll. Groupie Doll is a multiple graded stakes winner in 2012. 

            In her only other two starts this year since joining Brown’s stable, the French-bred Whipsaw City took a pair of allowance races on the Gulfstream grass in impressive fashion. Prior to coming to America this year, she raced in France for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget and all of her efforts were in stakes company. 

            Brown said that Corporate Jungle, who won the $75,000 Elkwood Stakes on the turf here on May 19, may return for another stakes during the meet but he had no specific race on the white board at this stage.
