The Possibility of Potential

If any horse other than Verrazano (2-1), Palace Malice (5-2) or Orb (4-1) finishes first in Travers 144, you will get paid. It's just difficult to envision ALL three being beaten.

Each and every one is accomplished, but Palace Malice has two things the others don't; an undefeated 2-for-2 Spa slate and potential. Orb and Verrazano might be "better horses." But the feeling is we've seen their best but not Palace Malice's. Actually, we think he just might be getting started.

Taking Palace Malice to win at 5-2 or greater, key boxing in exactas with his rivals here, and adding Transparent (10-1) and Will Take Charge (10-1) to the exotics mix.
