Spun to Run Scratched from Saturday’s Pegasus (G1)

January 23, 2020

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – 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.

            Adjusted Morning Line is:

            1: True Timber             15-1

            2: Tax                          8-1

            3: Diamond Oops        15-1

            4: Seeking the Soul     30-1

            5: Omaha Beach          Even

            6: Higher Power          6-1

            7: War Story                30-1

            8: Mr Freeze                20-1

            9: Scratched

            10: Mucho Gusto        9-2

            11: Tenfold                 30-1

            12: Bodexpress           30-1
