Attrition

To Honor and Serve and Premier Pegasus have both sustained injuries (both to the left fore, I think) and are off the Derby Trail. To Honor and Serve has a pulled suspensory ligament and Premier Pegasus has a fracture in his cannon bone that requires surgery. That’s two of the top ten knocked off. Soldat has been underperforming.

I’m thinking that Mr. Commons has an opportunity to step up in the Santa Anita Derby. I have great respect for John Shireffs talent as a trainer.

Time will tell.
