Monday, 31st August 2015

Owners Three Chimneys Farm and Cot Campbell announced on Thursday that Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice (Curlin-Palace Rumor, by Royal Anthem) has been retired to stud, reports Blood Horse. "It is with great disappointment that we announce the retirement of Palace Malice," said Campbell, whose Dogwood Stable co-owns the 5YO. "He is the horse of a lifetime, who has brought our partners exciting memories that will live on forever. He did it all for us, winning a classic and the Met Mile, and a whole lot more along the way." "Palace Malice is a valuable addition to the strengthening roster at Three Chimneys, as he possesses superb physical (attributes) to go along with an amazing body of work as a racehorse. He sprinted at 2, went the classic distance at 3, and showed off his miler versatility at 4," said Doug Cauthen, vice chair of the Three Chimneys board. A service fee is yet to be announced. Apart from his victory in the 2013 Belmont Stakes, Palace Malice's other Gr1 success came in the 2014 Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park in which he defeated two-time Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile winner Goldencents. He retires with 7 wins from 19 starts for US$2,691,135 earnings.
