Another Great Work For Palace Malice

He had another sparkling work Sunday morning, July 20, going five-eighths in 1:00.59.  He spotted another horse about four lengths – by design – caught up with him at the quarter pole and finished three or four lengths ahead.  Palace Malice galloped out six furlongs in 1:13.3 and went out a mile in 1:41.3.  John Velazquez was on him.

It couldn’t have gone any better.

I talked with the stakes coordinator yesterday and he felt like there would be a field of about seven.  This is surprising considering the money that is offered. 

The Whitney will be shown live on NBC on August 2 with coverage beginning at 5:00 p.m. EST.

At Saratoga, he will train daily at 6:30 a.m., but will breeze weekly at 8:45 a.m.

Wade Named Dogwood Treasurer

 

Dogwood Stable has announced the appointment of Robert D. Wade, CPA, as its Treasurer. Mr. Wade is the recently retired partner of Elliott Davis, LLC, a large regional CPA firm. He is a past member of the firm’s executive committee and a past managing shareholder of the firm’s CPA office.

 

“It was a stroke of luck to get Bob Wade’s services. He understands the world of Thoroughbred Racing through an earlier relationship, and our somewhat reduced volume suited his appetite,” Dogwood Stable President Cot Campbell said.

 

Through a merger in July, 2013, Dogwood has reduced its horse partnership roster from 65 to 20. This includes Palace Malice, currently America’s top ranked Thoroughbred racehorse.

Most of Dogwood’s horses are owned by a partnership of four persons.

 

Bob Wade replaces Bill Victor, who serves now as treasurer of Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, which has taken over the syndication of new horses from the downsizing Dogwood operation.

 

“Bob will handle all of Dogwood’s finances, with two part-time assistants, Nikki Bargeloh and Jen Eisenmann. Palace Malice alone generates considerable work with his earnings now approaching $3 million, and his future value as a stallion increasing dramatically.” Campbell said.

Newsletter Update

Our Dogwood Newsletter has been very popular, it seems.  For some years, we published it three or four times a year.  Since we have merged with Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and have greatly reduced by attrition the number of horses in the Dogwood roster, we have not tried to publish a newsletter.  However, we think we will do one by the end of the year.  Its publication date is undetermined, but we look forward to putting one together and sending it out to our partners and friends.  In the meantime, thanks to those of you who have made complimentary remarks about it and have asked when they will see the next one.

The only social media in which Dogwood Stable has any involvement whatsoever is the Dogwood Newsletter.
