2013 Palm Beach Stakes Race Favorites

Charming Kitten - Todd Pletcher colt is coming off a nice win in the minor Kitten's Joy Stakes here January 20 after a decent second in the Dania Beach also on this track December 15. He finished an ugly ninth in the Dixiana Breeders' Futurity three back after a third in the Grade 2 With Anticipation Stakes in August and a maiden win in his debut at this distance at Saratoga July 28. John Velazquez will ride the morning line favorite - he enters the Palm Beach in good form against just an average field this week.

Dewey Square - Eclipse Award winning trainer Dale Romans sends out Dewey Square who won a MSW and an Allowance Optional Claiming race to start his career and was third two back in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs November 24 behind Uncaptured and Frac Daddy. Last time out was a disappointing seventh in the Grade 3 Holy Bull on this track January 26 for his worst career result. Dewey Square is still considered a top Romans prospect and will be out to prove it Sunday. Javier Castellano gets the mount.
