Fly On Angel leads all the way to take Charles Town Oaks (G3)
Saturday, August 29, 2020
Palace Malice got his second graded stakes winner of the year on Friday evening when Fly On Angel went gate-to-wire to win the $200,000 Charles Town Oaks (G3) by a half-length over Wicked Whisper.

Palace Malice now has three stakes winners and five stakes horses overall this year, both ranking him in the Top 10 on the Second-Crop sire list.

Fly On Angel caught a flyer out of the gate and quickly took command in the seven-furlong race.  Despite setting a rapid pace of :46.25 for the half-mile, the dark bay 3-year-old had enough left to hold off the runner up to claim her fourth lifetime win in nine starts.

The winner is owned by Joseph Besecker and has earned $225,160. She was bred by Machmer Hall & Haymarket Farm and is out of the stakes-placed mare Runge.
