Another Ned Evans-bred three-year-old will try for a little better luck today at Saratoga when Gary and Mary West’s Code West takes on nine other top three-year-olds in the $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes Gr.2.  Belmont Stakes Gr.1 winner Palace Malice has the role of morning line favorite for Travers prep  at 9 furlongs.

By Lemon Drop Kid, out of Charitabledonation by Saint Ballado, Code West has won his last two starts – an allowance race at Pimlico in May and most recently the  $100,000 Matt Winn Stakes Gr.3 at Churchill Downs on June 15th.  Prior to that he was second in the Risen Star Gr. 2 at the Fairgrounds.

Code West broke his maiden last October at Santa Anita.  He now has a bankroll of $260,476. The $340,000 2011 Sept Yearling will be ridden by Joel Rosario for trainer Bob Baffert.
