Spun To Run Scratches Out Of Pegasus

January 23, 2020

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Spun to Run has been scratched from Saturday’s $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) presented by Runhappy, said trainer Juan Carlos Guerrero Thursday morning.

“After he came to Palm Meadows [Training Center] we noticed he was a little hot so we clipped his hair,” Guerrero said. “Then two weeks later we noticed some spots, hives on his body. We wanted to run, but he’s a little hot and sore and we always want to do the right thing for the horse. It’s unfortunate, but we want the best for him.”

Spun to Run was the second choice in the original Pegasus morning line at 7-2. The Pegasus will now have 10 starters after Omaha Beach scratched today as well.

Adjusted Morning Line is:

1. True Timber15-1 
 2. Tax 8-1
 3. Diamond Oops 15-1
 4. Seeking the Soul 30-1
 5. Omaha Beach Scratched
 6. Higher Power 6-1
 7. War Story 30-1
 8. Mr Freeze 20-1
 9. Spun To Run Scratched
 10. Mucho Gusto 9-2
 11. Tenfold 30-1
 12. Bodexpress 30-1
