From the Gulfstream Park Media Team:
Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Spun to Run has been scratched from Saturday’s $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) presented by Runhappy, said trainer Juan Carlos Guerrero Thursday morning.
“After he came to Palm Meadows [Training Center] we noticed he was a little hot so we clipped his hair,” Guerrero said. “Then two weeks later we noticed some spots, hives on his body. We wanted to run, but he’s a little hot and sore and we always want to do the right thing for the horse. It’s unfortunate, but we want the best for him.”
Spun to Run was the second choice in the original Pegasus morning line at 7-2. The Pegasus will now have 11 starters.
