Godolphin’s globe-trotting $16.5-million earner and two-time G1 Dubai World Cup hero Thunder Snow (Ire) (Helmet {Aus}) will be forced to miss Saturday’s GI Whitney H. at Saratoga. “We took him to the track this morning and he came back to the barn and coughed a few times,” said trainer Saeed bin Suroor. “We took his temperature and he’s running a little bit of a fever. In the best interests of the horse, we will be passing on the Whitney today.”
