SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (WRDW) -- With one final, powerful push Palace Malice proved who was the class of the field at the Jim Dandy Stakes, winning the $600,000 race by a length Saturday at the Saratoga Race Course.

The Belmont Stakes winner hung on the rear flank of early leader Moreno from the outset, staying right there until making the turn for home. He made a push, sitting even with the leader before leaving the field in the dust in the final 1/16.

The now-surging 3-year-old finished the race in 1:47.37, the second best time in the 50-year history of the Jim Dandy.

The win comes in a tumultuous week for Dogwood Stable President Cot Campbell. Last weekend, the news was that one of the oldest barns at the stable burned to the ground with 24 horses being saved from the flames.

The week ends with a Grade II stakes win in the season opener at Saratoga and the second straight victory for Palace Malice.

Now, the bay colt from Curlin prepares for the million dollars Travers Stakes next month at Saratoga.

The victory was worth $360,000 to Dogwood Stable, and $4.70, $3.40 and $2.70 to Palace Malice's betting supporters. Will Take Charge paid $11.80 and $6.10, and Moreno returned $4.30 to show.
