Palace Malice Points For Saratoga
On several occasions during the spring, minor problems have cost us significant training days with Palace Malice. Thus, we've had to alter his racing schedule in an undesirable way. But he is now on a weekly breezing program and we're pleased with the outlook.
We have a number of big races on his dance card. However, we're going to let him tell us what his next race will be at Saratoga. We do plan on two appearances at that track, but must remain uncommitted at this time.
The main thing is he's doing well and we're optimistic about a good summer and fall.
Street Fight will run Wednesday, July 29, in the first race at Saratoga. This is an Allowance steeplechase race going two and one-sixteenth miles over national fences. Street Fight has post position 5 of 9 and Willie MCarthy will ride at 1:00 PM. The purse is $65,000.
Finalize will make his career debut Wednesday in the third race at Saratoga. Going five and one-half furlongs on the grass, he has post position 7 of 9 with Manuel Franco riding at 2:06 PM. The purse is $45,000.
Cot and Anne Campbell, along with Angel Cordero, Jr., will be honored at the "Unbridled Affair" event on Thursday, July 30. This event supports the work of Captain Youth and Family Services.
