Print

Todd Pletcher was the big winner in the weekend’s top stakes races for three-year-olds. On Saturday, Dogwood Stable's Belmont Stakes winner, Palace Malice, gave Pletcher his sixth Jim Dandy (G2) victory. On Sunday, Let’s Go Stable’s Verrazano gave Pletcher his third Haskell Invitational (G1) win. Both colts were sent off as favorites and each dominated his race. Now the race is on for top three-year-old honors!

On Saturday, Palace Malice overtook a game Moreno in the stretch of the 1 1/8 mile race and cruised to a length win over a fast-charging Will Take Charge in the $600,000 Jim Dandy (G2). Moreno held on for third and Bashaar kept a head in front of Code West to take fourth. Mylute, second-choice in the field, never fired and finished next to last.

Palace Malice returned $4.70, $3.40, and $2.70. Will Take Charge paid $11.80 and $6.10 and completed the $2 exacta for $60. Moreno paid $4.30 and completed the $2 trifecta for $677. Bashaar completed the $2 superfecta for $4,132. The final time for the 1 1/8 mile race over the fast dirt was 1:47.37.
