Top Three from Fall Highweight Return in $100,000 Gravesend

Top Three from Fall Highweight Return in $100,000 Gravesend

Category : News - Thu 24/12/2015 - 13:01 EST

With a compact field set to contest the $100,000 Gravesend Stakes December 26 at Aqueduct, multiple grade 1 winner Palace is set to make the final start of his career in the six furlong sprint.

Listed as the 2/1 morning line favorite, Palace exits a second-place finish in the Grade 3 Fall Highweight November 26 at Aqueduct. The Linda Rice-trained six year-old appears to be rounding back into form with a trio of on-the-board finishes in his last three starts. Palace has one win in six starts this year with a victory in the Hudson Stakes October 24 at Belmont after a banner year in 2014 that included a pair of grade 1 wins to go with a grade 2 score. Jockey Cornelio Velazquez will be aboard breaking from post 3.

Speedster will try to wire the field

The speedy Green Gratto (3/1) pulled a major upset winning the Fall Highweight at long odds, and could be dangerous once again if left to an uncontested early lead. Backers will have to take a much shorter price on the five year-old veteran horse who has just 2 wins in 15 starts this year. Jockey Kendrick Carmouche will be in the irons breaking from post 2.

Fabulous Kid tries to turn tables

Fabulous Kid (7/2) is another returning from the Fall Highweight where the David Jacobson trainee finished third. It was the best of his three stakes tries in a career that has seen the four year-old son of Congrats win 5 of 19 starts. Manuel Franco gets the call breaking from post 5.
