Shackleford (Forestry), the 2-1 morning-line favorite for today's GI Forego S. at Saratoga, has been scratched from the seven-furlong event. "He had a little cough last week and a little cough this morning, so we're going to play it safe," said Dale Romans, who trains the 4-year-old for Michael Lauffer, W.D. Cubbedge, and Phillips Racing Partnership. Last year's GI Preakness S. hero won the GI Met Mile two starts back, and was looking to bounce back after a last-of-eight performance in the GI Alfred G. Vanderbilt H. Aug. 5, contested over a muddy Spa track. Favoritism in the Forego could now fall to last year's winner Jackson Bend (Hear No Evil), who was pegged as the 7-2 second choice in the morning line.
