  • Kentucky Derby post draw Omaha Beach is 4-1 early favorite

Grade 3 Gotham victor Haikal may be a scratch for the Kentucky Derby after his connections told reporters Thursday morning the colt was being treated for a hoof abscess. According to Pat Forde at Yahoo Sports, the horse was coughing this morning and when it was examined a test revealed entrapped epiglottis, which disrupts the horse's breathing.

Richard Mandella told Churchill Downs the colt will miss the race because of entrapped epiglottis.

Tacitus also won the Tampa Bay Derby (G2), however, this race has also not been the most productive prep for horses looking to win the Kentucky Derby.

Omaha Beach was a 4-1 favorite when odds were posted Wednesday morning. He says Omaha Beach will be out of training for three weeks.

"He's a great sport", Mandella said.

"It's such a disappointment, but we'll fight again, " Mandella told the AP.

Smith has three mounts on Friday's card at Churchill Downs and five Saturday.

The role of likely favorite now falls to Game Winner, who was the 5-1 second choice.

It's a bitter blow for the 68-year-old trainer and the horse's owner, Rick Porter, a 77-year-old who has been in the thoroughbred racing business for many years.

Omaha Beach won his past three starts, including the Arkansas Derby, while ridden by last year's Triple Crown winning jockey, Mike Smith. All three are entered by Bob Baffert, who previous year became only the second trainer in history to saddle more than one Triple Crown victor when Justify completed the rare sweep of the Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes.

Another reason I will be against the Wood Memorial victor is his connection's records in the Derby. He will move into post position 20 and the rest of the field will move down to make up for the opening in post 12, which had been Omaha Beach's starting position.
