Bucked Shins Sideline Palace Malice

Palace Malice breaks maiden at Saratoga (8-4-12)

Palace Malice, a son of 2007 Horse of the Year Curlin, will not run in the Grade 2, $300,000 Three Chimneys Hopeful Stakes on Monday because of a pronounced bucked shin.

“He bucked his shins and he’ll be off for a little while,” said trainer Todd Pletcher of the Dogwood Stable colt, who missed by a half-length when second in his debut to Carried Interest at Belmont Park and then won a 6 ½-furlong maiden race by 3 ½ lengths on August 4 at the Spa.

Palace Malice breezed four furlongs in 48.90 seconds on Monday, after which the bucked shin – an inflammation around bones in the front legs – was discovered. The minor injury is common in young race horses.

“He is a May foal, so it’s not a complete shock that he has bucked,” Dogwood President Cot Campbell said in a prepared statement. “But it is a blow, because we thought he would be salty to accomplish Dogwood’s third win in the Hopeful. But now he ships this weekend to Dr. Bob Copelan in Kentucky and will be treated for the shin problem. He will then rehab in Aiken for a 3-year-old campaign in Florida .”

Palace Malice was a $200,000 purchase this year at the Keeneland Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale in April.

Pletcher will still be represented by three runners in the Hopeful, Shanghai Bobby and Lawn Man for Starlight Racing, as well as Repole Stable’s Overanalyze.
