Palace Malice

I though he deserved his own discussion on here. He won The grade 1 Jom Danndy and the grade 1 Belmont Stakes this year.


  • This article says he may be invited to run in the World Cup next year but he will most likely say in the US.
  • hes the most likely champion 3 yr old this year..unless WTC were to win the classic. nice to see curlin probably get a champion in his first crop since our win now, impatient breeders usually arent willing to let horses develop which the curlins probably will do at 4
  • His half sis Lady June Bug (by Elusive Quality) for sale and is in foal to English Channel!
  • Interesting article on Palace Malice. Very fun to see how far he has come:

    He’s a celebrated athlete that won one of Thoroughbred racing’s most important races.
    Dogwood Stable’s Palace Malice returned to Aiken Friday. The winner of the 145th Belmont Stakes is settling into his new surroundings at Legacy Stable, and will once again set foot on the Aiken Training Track on Tuesday, said W. Cothran Campbell, Dogwood Stable president.
    The Grade 1 winning millionaire’s routine physical at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Ky. was seamless, said Campbell. Palace Malice finished his sophomore year in the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 2 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif.
    “He’s had a lot of action,” said Campbell. “They thought he was completely sound, but it was the intelligent thing to do at the end of the campaign, to give him a thorough, exhaustive physical, and that he got and passed with flying colors.”
    Palace Malice will train Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 8:30 each morning, and will graze at 1:30 p.m. The horse will leave Aiken on Jan. 8, and will return to Todd Pletcher’s barn at Palm Meadows in Boynton Beach, Fla., in preparation for the Grade 2 New Orleans Handicap at the Fair Grounds on March 29, 2014, said Campbell.
    “That will give him nine weeks to get ready for the race,” said Campbell, who was born in the Crescent City. “I’d like to go to New Orleans. It’s big money and he has some fans there.”
    The other option was the Grade 1 Donn Handicap, but the race at Gulfstream Park is in February, and by giving him more time, he should be poised to start his 4-year-old campaign in good order at the Fair Grounds, said Campbell.
    “It’s just a logical place to start him,” said Campbell. “The New Orleans race is just right.”
    The colt continues to develop, improving with age, and there’s no reason to think that 2014 won’t be another banner year, said Campbell.
    “His daddy was good as a 4-year-old,” said Campbell. “Everything points to that fact (that he should enjoy a successful 4-year-old campaign). He’ll have his fourth birthday on May 2. He’ll be a better horse as he matures. He’s a pleasure to be around, and I appreciate having a good horse like him.”
    Campbell and Palace Malice’s trainer, Todd Pletcher, sold the colt’s half-sister during the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale’s third session. Lady June Bug, a 4-year-old filly, was consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, and was purchased by WinStar Farm LLC.
    “Todd and I bought his half-sister for $25,000, and sold her for $260,000,” said Campbell. “It’s little ripples from his accomplishment.”
    Stakes winner Big Screen and stakes placed Miss Frost have returned to Aiken, and Carolinian will be back later this month, said Campbell.
    “We’ll have a good many in this winter,” said Campbell. “We’re going to get them ready for a good spring in the east.”
  • Palace Malice an Eclipse Award finalist, resumes training in Florida

    The 2013 Aiken Trained Horse of the Year is an Eclipse Award finalist.
    Dogwood Stable’s Palace Malice joins Travers Stakes winner Will Take Charge, and Kentucky Derby winner Orb, as finalists for the Male 3-Year-Old Championship. The Eclipse Awards will be held Jan. 18 at Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
    “I thought he was worthy of being a finalist, but my opinion of him being a finalist, and Palace Malice being a finalist is two different things,” said W. Cothran Campbell, Dogwood Stable president. “I was glad that he did receive the recognition along with Orb and Will Take Charge. I would have to think realistically that Will Take Charge will be the 3-Year-Old Champion. I’m glad to be a finalist. We will have the opportunity in 2014 to turn the tables on Will Take Charge. We will certainly try to do that.”
    Palace Malice won the 145th running of the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes and the Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes during his sophomore campaign. Dogwood Stable has had two previous Eclipse Award winning runners, Inlander, 1987 outstanding Steeplechase Horse and Storm Song, 1996 outstanding 2-Year-Old Female. Campbell received the Eclipse Award of Merit in 2012 for a lifetime of outstanding achievement in Thoroughbred racing.
    The 4-year-old colt arrived at Palm Meadows Training Center in Boynton Beach, Fla. at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, and galloped Wednesday morning.
    “He went beautifully, and Todd (Plecther, Palace Malice’s trainer at the racetrack) was delighted with his condition,” said Campbell. “And boy, I’ve got to salute Brad Stauffer, Gene Tucker and Daniel Negrete, who took care of him and groomed him. Todd plans to breeze him Sunday or Monday.” Campbell was overwhelmed by the community’s support that saw more than 500 people turnout for Palace Malice’s gallop last Saturday afternoon. “It was truly a dramatic outpouring of affection and interest from the community,” said Campbell.

    So glad I got to meet him at Keeneland when he ran in the Bluegrass. Love him. I'm so proud of him you'd think he was my horse. LOL.
