•Palace Malice makes strong impression in Sunday work, 7/21•
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – It was a typically busy Sunday morning at Saratoga, and also typically, Palace Malice made the strongest impression, working a very strong five furlongs in preparation for the Grade 1, $1.5 million Whitney Handicap Invitational on Aug. 2.
With his regular rider, John Velazquez in the irons, Palace Malice worked five furlongs in 1:00.59 in company with the 3-year-old maiden March Too. Palace Malice began about three lengths back and went his first three furlongs in 36.68 seconds, and he powered home his final quarter in 23.91. Palace Malice galloped out six furlongs in 1:13.68, seven furlongs in 1:27.86, and pulled up a mile in 1:41.67.
“Thought he worked super,” trainer Todd Pletcher said. “He’s maintaining form. He seems to have done well since the Met [Mile], training well over the track. He’s in great condition, so we’re happy.”
Palace Malice will be seeking his fifth win in as many starts in 2014 when he runs in the Whitney. Palace Malice has already won the Gulfstream Park Handicap, New Orleans Handicap, the Westchester, and the Met Mile.
Palace Malice is expected to meet Travers 1-2 finishers Will Take Charge and Moreno in the Whitney, as well as Departing, Romansh, and perhaps Zivo.
