Dogwood Stable’s Palace Malice drew the fifth post Wednesday and is listed at odds of 8-1 for Saturday’s $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland in Lexington, Ky.
The Todd Pletcher-trained colt, who finished seventh in the Louisiana Derby on March 30, will be ridden by Garrett Gomez.
Uncaptured is the early favorite for the race, a major Kentucky Derby prep.
The Mark Casse-trained Uncaptured drew the seventh post position for the Grade I qualifier worth 170 total points toward the Kentucky Derby.
Uncaptured is listed at 7-2 odds in the 14-horse field while Rydilluc and Java’s War, who drew the 13th and fourth positions respectively, are both 4-1.
