 CURLIN’s best son

Out of a stakes-winning $1.1 million sales mare

Bred on a similar pattern as English Channel (Sire of 15 GSWs)

Palace Malice

We have always had a strong belief in Palace Malice’s chances of developing into an important sire. He was an immensely talented horse who Todd Pletcher described as the most versatile horse he had ever trained. He is cut in the mold of his Classic sire Curlin, one of the most desirable stallions in the breed today.
