Palace Malice Gearing Up for Whitney

With an eye on the Grade 1, $1.5 million Whitney on August 2, Palace Malice breezed five furlongs in 1:00.48 seconds with Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez aboard.

 

The two-time Grade 1 winner went in company with unraced 3-year-old March Two and was caught by NYRA clockers galloping out six furlongs in 1:13 3/5 on the main track.

 

"I thought he worked great and we were very pleased with what he did," said trainer Todd Pletcher. "He seems to be maintaining form and doing very well."

 

Palace Malice is exiting a one-length win in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap on June 7 and is unbeaten in four starts as a 4-year-old. At 3, he won the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes and made two starts at the Spa, taking the Grade 2 Jim Dandy and finishing fourth in the Grade 1 Travers.

 

Pletcher added that Palace Malice is scheduled to work again next Sunday at 8:45 a.m.
