Keepmeinmind (Laoban) has been scratched from Saturday's $1-million GI Pennsylvania Derby after an abscess was discovered in his left front foot.
“It's just bad timing,” trainer Robertino Diorodo said. “He trained like a monster [Thursday] and we needed the pony to get him off the track, he was feeling so good. This is definitely disappointing, but the main thing is the horse is going to be ok. Terrible timing.”
GSW Keepmeinmind was last seen finishing fourth in the Aug. 28 GI Runhappy Travers S.
