Throat Surgery Forces Shaman Ghost to Skip Woodward
Multiple grade 1 winner Shaman Ghost will undergo throat surgery, which will prevent him from competing in the $750,000 Woodward Stakes (G1) at Saratoga Race Course Sept. 2, trainer Jimmy Jerkens said Aug. 17.

Jerkens said the 2016 Woodward winner "was making a little bit of a noise that we didn't like, and we investigated it and it needs to be addressed. That doesn't always help, the surgery, but we certainly have to try it."

Shaman Ghost will have the surgery Aug. 21 at Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists in Elmont, N.Y.

Jerkens did not give a timetable for when the 5-year-old son of Ghostzapper will return.

I had my finger on the post button, Sparrow... you beat me to it.

And bummer for Ghost and his connections. I was looking forward to seeing him in a couple of weeks too.

Bummer that he will be laid up for a bit, but hopefully he'll be back at the track soon. Fingers crossed he stays in training for another year.

Is this Hop's first work since Dubai?
Nice to see him back, especially since poor Bob has hardly any decent older horses in his barn. :P :lol:

Cupid to ship east for the Sept. 2 Woodward per Baffert.

Maybe not. I just saw Cupid schooling in the Del Mar paddock (looking sensational!) and heard the tail end of a conversation about him by the TVG folks. Sounded like he was running in an upcoming Del Mar stakes on Wednesday. :?
Checked the entries for Wednesday and, sure enough, he's entered in the 1-mile, $75,000 Harry F. Brubaker Stakes.
Would Baffert run the Tapit colt here...and then in the Woodward on such a short turn-around? Could some other horse from his barn be headed back to the Spa? It's not like he doesn't have another older male to choose from. :P
