Antonio Miuccio’s Palace rallied wide in Saturday’s $150,000 Hudson Handicap at Belmont, charged past the leaders in the final seventy yards and scored by a length and  a quarter. It’s the second straight stakes win for the 4-year-old colt by City Zip, sold for $160,000 by Crupi’s New Castle Farm, Agent, at the 2011 OBS March Sale. He’s now 13-7-2-2 with $352,050 in earnings. watch his under tack video

Edward J. Brown Jr., Philip Lebherz and Alan M. Klein’s Majestic Stride, who chased Secret Circle in last year’s Southwest Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park, has also returned running from an extended vacation, scoring two straight wins. Trained by Jeff Bonde, the 4-year-old Florida-bred colt by Trippi was sold for $50,000 by Kaizen Sales, Agent, at the 2010 OBS August Sale.
