Flashy filly by exciting young sire

Luxury Box (Palace filly) Outlook

She will never be hard to spot, this eye-catching bay filly by Palace with white across her face and “socks” on all four legs. We've watched her blossom all winter at Eddie Woods Training Center in Ocala and can't wait to get her up to Christophe Clement at Saratoga in a few weeks.

She is a New York-bred by one of the best statebreds of the last decade—Palace dominated the sprint division at Belmont Park and Saratoga in 2013 and 2014, winning six stakes including Saratoga's Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt and Forego Stakes. That earned Palace a place at stud in Kentucky, where he has been breeding more than 100 mares a season.

West Point's buying team has been impressed with Palace's first crop, and the opportunity to get in on a New York-bred filly bound for trainer Christophe Clement is ever-alluring, given Clement's success in the lucrative and still growing New York-bred program.

Clement worked wonders with the marvelous New York-bred Lubash, whose 18th and final victory came as a 9-year-old in the Grade 3 Tropical Park Handicap at Calder in 2016. He retired with a bankroll north of $1.5-million. Clement currently has another durable star in Disco Partner, who is a New York-bred turf sprinter so good that he has won seven stakes in open company while earning $1.3-million.

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2020.
