First Mission | Jim McCue

After consulting with the 1/ST veterinary team, Godolphin will scratch First Mission (Street Sense) from this year's GI Preakness S., the organization said in a release early on Friday morning.

The dark bay colt will receive further evaluation in Kentucky at Rood and Riddle hospital with Dr. Larry Bramlage. Brad Cox worked with the 1/ST veterinary team the last couple of days to try and fully identify a left hind issue, but were unable to do so on the grounds at Pimlico.

Godolphin's Director of Bloodstock, Michael Banahan said, “We are obviously very disappointed, but the welfare of the horse is our utmost concern, and we are going to take the necessary steps to determine the best course of action to get him back on the track.”
