Top Derby prospect Mask has had setback, to miss 2 weeks of training, out of Risen Star, per Brown
The unbeaten 3-year-old colt Mask, considered a top prospect for the Kentucky Derby, has had a setback “that will require him to miss approximately two weeks of training,” trainer Chad Brown said Tuesday.

Brown said the timing of the setback, details of which he did not want to disclose, would keep Mask out of his next scheduled start, the Grade 2, $400,000 Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds on Feb. 17.

“He’s unfortunately had a setback,” Brown said of Mask, who did not work last weekend after recording a half-mile breeze in 49.75 seconds on Jan. 20 at Palm Meadows, his first work after winning the Mucho Macho Man Stakes at Gulfstream on Jan. 6.

“The timing is very unfortunate,” Brown said. “He’s expected to be 100 percent very soon. I won’t make any decisions about his next race until I see him breeze.”

The Risen Star would have been the first two-turn race for Mask. The Mucho Macho Man is a one-turn mile, and in his only other start, Mask won a 6 1/2-furlong maiden race at Belmont on Oct. 20.

I have some questions.
Does Coolmore want to campaign St. Patrick's Day as a turf horse? Is this a way to see whether it's worthwhile sending some of their grass mares to American Pharoah...see if the full brother shows talent on the green?
How hard is it for Ahmed Zayat to spell McKinzie's name correctly? Dude...you couldn't take the time to glance at Balan's tweet, and get the name of the colt...and Baffert's late friend...right? :roll:

Weirdness. What would Zayat know about St. Patrick's Day? I do hope Solomini gets back on track soon.
My sneak 3yo in the Baffert barn is Zulfilkhar. Romped first time out at Los Alamitos in July, now back on track big time.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

He and Coolmore are two of the top owners for Baffert. It probably would have been mentioned over a phone call or during a barn visit that the full sibling to his Triple Crown winner had be exported.

St Patrick's Day Mending in Ireland from Tendon Injury
St Patrick's Day, the 3-year-old full brother to Triple Crown winner American Pharoah , is in Ireland for rehabilitation from a tendon injury, Coolmore confirmed Feb. 1.

The son of Pioneerof the Nile broke his maiden Sept. 2 in a 6 1/2-furlong maiden special weight at Del Mar after running second upon debut at the seaside oval for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert Aug. 20. Campaigned by Susan Magnier, St Patrick's Day was a private purchase from breeder Jane Lyon's Summer Wind Farm.

"Bob Baffert sent St Patrick's Day back to Ashford following his maiden win in September due to a tendon injury," Coolmore's Dermot Ryan said. "We decided to seek specialist treatment in England and he is now back rehabilitating in Ireland. All going well he could be campaigned in Europe this summer."

Global Weekly Review: Draw a line through Enticed’s run
Godolphin trainer Kiaran McLaughlin suggests that Enticed’s well-beaten fourth in Saturday’s G2 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park should be written off and the colt given another chance at his next run.

McLaughlin, who had earlier celebrated Avery Island’s comfortable win in the G3 Withers Stakes at Aqueduct, said there were negative factors associated with Enticed being trapped on the inside for a prolonged period around the first turn and turning into the back stretch.

“It was tight down on the inside,” the trainer explained. “Rain in the morning meant the track favoured those up on the speed.

“But Enticed, from gate 1, was taking dirt (in the face) for seven furlongs. Normally, you would be hoping for some spacing in the field, and a chance to get into the clear. But with the traffic on the inside that never happened,” he said.

Montauk is off the Derby trail, but the MdO colt will hopefully be back for the second half of the year.
KY Derby Future Wager: Wagering Suspended On Montauk After Colt Sidelined
Wagering on Montauk (#15), an 11 ¼-length debut winner at Belmont Park in October, has been suspended for the second of four pools of the 2018 Kentucky Derby Future Wager, which opens its three-day run on Friday at noon (all times Eastern).
Montauk, a 3-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro trained by Todd Pletcher and owned by Robert V. LaPenta, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Twin Creeks Racing Stables LLC and Bridlewood Farm, had recently recorded two published workouts at Palm Beach Downs, including a half-mile breeze in :51 on Saturday. The connections met Friday morning and a decision was made to address a minor throat issue that would prevent Montauk from a chance to make the May 5 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (Grade I).
“The ownership group and Todd huddled up this morning and we decided that we are going to address a minor throat issue that will take him out of training for a few weeks,” said co-owner Aron Wellman, president and founder of Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners. “We were already on a tight enough schedule as it was and this will make him miss just enough time to not be ready for the Derby. However, by doing what's best for the horse, we do hope to have a very serious animal on our hands for the second half of the year.”

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
