LEXINGTON, KY (July 30, 2013) – Keeneland September Yearling Sale graduates continue to dominate the racing scene, led by two of the nation’s top three-year-old colts – Verrazano and Palace Malice.

Palace Malice returned to the races after his Belmont (G1) victory to win the Jim Dandy Stakes (G2) at Saratoga over fellow September Sale grad Will Take Charge. At Deauville, champion Elusive Kate recorded her fourth Group 1 win in the Prix Rothschild.
