Texas Red To Miss Derby

Wednesday, 18th March 2015

Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red has been taken off the Kentucky Derby trail after connections conceded he will not have time to adequately prepare for the race, reports bloodhorse.com. Part-owner Erich Brehm said: "We do not have adequate time to prepare Texas Red for a prep race that he would need to get in condition for, and attain adequate points for, a Derby start. We look forward to bringing him back to the races when he is ready to compete again at the highest levels." Texas Red was among the early favourites for this year's Derby after his Breeders' Cup triumph but has been plagued by foot problems throughout early 2015.
