Palace Malice and Our Other Runners
Palace Malice has settled back into his routine at Todd Pletcher's Belmont barn and plans are for the colt to work on Sunday (without blinkers!).
"Our colt is galloping with great energy, is sound and is eating well," said Cot Campbell Tuesday morning. "After his work we'll have a pretty accurate picture of where we are with him. Early next week the Preakness aftermath will have crystallized and we'll know what the outlook is there. Palace Malice's work and the results of the Preakness will help us solidify our plans for the future, and they may include the Belmont Stakes."

Cot's BloodHorse.com Blogs
Since Iíve been around racing for awhile, Iíve had contact with some very interesting, colorful characters. Iíve agreed to write about a number of these people over the next year or so for The Blood-Horse website. We thought it was appropriate to have them available also on our website, so as they go up on BloodHorse.com, weíll duplicate these stories on ours. Now being featured is Doug Davis. He will be followed by many other luminaries of the sport in the future. We hope you enjoy them.
