Solow edges Arod in Sussex

The French-trained gray Solow (Singspiel) prevailed in his fourth Group 1 in succession on Wednesday when beating pacesetter Arod (Teofilo) by a half-length in the Sussex S. (Eng-G1) at Glorious Goodwood.

Trained by Freddie Head, Solow was the heavy 2-5 favorite in the Breeders' Cup "Win and You're In" event. However, Head said Solow would make only one more start this year, in the October 17 Queen Elizabeth II S. (Eng-G1) at Ascot.

Palace returns to state-bred company in John Morrissey

Palace (City Zip), who swept Saratoga's biggest sprint stakes last season, will attempt to get back on the winning track Thursday in the $100,000 John Morrissey at Saratoga.

The 6 1/2-furlong race for older New York-breds marks the first start for Palace since a fifth-place finish in the April 4 Carter H. (G1). The Linda Rice-trained six-year-old landed the Alfred G. Vanderbilt H. (G1) and Forego (G1) last season, but saw his championship aspirations fizzle out after finishing third in the Vosburgh (G1) and sixth in the Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1).

Also in the John Morrissey lineup is the race's 2014 winner Weekend Hideaway (Speightstown), who is also trying to snap a three-race losing skid. He's been unplaced three times since registering an impressive four-length score in the January 17 Sunshine Millions Sprint at Gulfstream.

Other likely contenders include last year's Hudson H. winner Moonlight Song (Unbridled's Song) and recent open allowance scorer Noble Cornerstone (Noble Causeway).

The day's action kicks off with the $75,000 Jonathan Kiser, a 2 1/16-mile novice hurdle.
