Trainer Chris Richard said Ring It Up is ill, so he's a scratch from the Grade II Rebel. Stable mate Pee H Dee remains in the race.
“I think he read the overnight and spiked a temperature,” said Richard half-jokingly. Ring It Up had scratched from a classy allowance race on Friday to run in the Rebel instead. “I had every intention of running both, but then we got here this morning and he was coughing. It’s nothing major. It’s not a seriously high fever, but we had to scratch him because he definitely has something going on.”
The scratch reduces the field to 12 horses. Because Ring It Up was part of an entry, there will be no change to the number of betting choices.
