Eskendereya is Out

The 2010 Kentucky Derby Morning line favorite Eskendereya, shown above crushing the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park earlier this year, will not be in the gate next Saturday because of a swollen ankle. He looked swell crushing the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct a few weeks ago (despite the slow fractions), but now it appears top trainer Todd Pletcher is going to have to wait at least one more year for his first Derby Win.
