Exothermic Pointed to Keeneland Start


Exothermic, who hasn't put in a workout since Feb. 24, won't run again at this Gulfstream Park meeting, according to a story at DRF.com.

“The plans were to run in the Palm Beach, but he had a small setback and missed two weeks of training,” trainer George “Rusty” Arnold told the publication. “It’s not a major problem, very minor in fact, but the timing was very bad. He’s back in training now, and if he comes back and does everything right, he’ll probably run at Keeneland. He’s nominated for the Blue Grass, but if he can’t make that, we’ll look at the Lexington.”
