No Kentucky Derby qualifying points are on the line in the grassy G3 Palm Beach Stakes, but the race could produce some entrants in later synthetic preps, including Keeneland s G1 Blue Grass S. on 4/13. That s the plan for Dewey Square, one of three runners in the field for trainer Dale Romans. The Bernardini colt threw in a clunker in the G3 Holy Bull S., but Romans hasn t lost faith and will take the same route with this one that he did with 2010 Kentucky Derby 3 rd -place finisher Paddy O Prado. Romans also sends out longshots Summit County and Squall King. Todd Pletcher s Charming Kitten is the 8/5 morning line favorite off his win in the Kitten s Joy S. He s a full brother to stakes winner and multiple graded stakes-placed Queen splatekitten, who finished 2 nd in the 2011 edition of this event. Triple Crown nominee Rydilluc figures to attract support at the windows after an impressive score over this course in early January. Quinzieme Monarque returns to the races and to grass off a 4 th -place finish in the Remsen S. to close out his juvenile campaign. Reporting Star failed to hit the board in his two stakes attempts, but he was close in both. Holiday Star goes for his third straight victory and won here at this distance on 1/26. Saturday Special was a non-threatening 4 th in the Kitten s Joy S. and his two career victories were on dirt. Dad z Laugh has been a bridesmaid four times in seven races but only off-the-board once. Amen Kitten gets a class check after breaking his maiden in a Gulfstream MC 75000.
