Grade I winner Hit the Road (More Than Ready) has been scratched from Saturday's GI Breeders' Cup Mile due to a fever, trainer Dan Blacker announced via Twitter Friday.
“Sad to report we have to scratch Hit The Road from Breeders' Cup Mile as he has a fever,” Blacker tweeted. “So disappointed for his great group of owners. Unbelievably bad timing and bad luck. We will get him healthy, regroup and point for the next race.”
Winner of the GI Frank E. Kilroe Mile and GIII Thunder Road S. earlier this year, Hit the Road was most recently third in the GII City of Hope Mile S. Oct. 2.
