Hersh: Looking for value in Met Mile


Palace Malice is the best horse in the Metropolitan Handicap. Moreover, he loves Belmont Park and showed in the Westchester – albeit against foes who had basically zero chance to beat him – that this one-turn-mile thing is a go. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth – and, I would assume, a rising of the morning-line to 8-5 – when Palace Malice drew post 1, with trainer Todd Pletcher expressing acute disappointment.
