Antonino Miuccio’s Palace was overlooked at 9-1 in Friday’s $250, 000 True North Stakes (G2) at Belmont, but rallied wide into the lane, hit the front a furlong from home and scored by three quarters of a length. It’s the fourth stakes win for the 5-year-old son of City Zip, whose resume also includes a victory in last November’s Fall Highweight Handicap (G3) at Aqueduct. Sold for $160,000 by Crupi’s New Castle Farm, Agent, at the 2011 OBS March Sale after an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat, he’s now 18-9-4-2 and has earned $719,550. watch his under tack video
