Classic winner Palace Malice continues to recuperate in Kentucky as a decision nears on whether the talented colt will continue to race or be retired to stud.

Cot Campbell, president of Dogwood Stable, told the Aiken Standard that the 4-year-old son of Curlin is “enjoying life” and resting in Kentucky.

“I am 80 percent sure that Dr. Larry Bramlage (of Rood & Riddle) will tell us to put him back in training,” Campbell said. “If that happens, he'll get on a van and come to Aiken.”

Campbell and his wife, Anne, were in Kentucky last week and visited Three Chimneys Farm, where Palace Malice has been recuperating. Palace Malice is stabled in a barn that is usually used for yearlings.

“He gets turned out every day in a paddock around noon or 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and he stays outside until dawn,” Campbell told the Standard.

Palace Malice, who won the 2013 G1 Belmont Stakes and rattled off four straight graded stakes wins this year, including the G1 Met Mile, will be examined by veterinarians Nov. 15. A decision regarding his racing career will be made at that time.
