Green Light Go scratched from the Hopeful. Jerkens said he didn't want to run him in the mud. Next stop G1 Champagne at Belmont on October 5.

Any news on MALPAIS?

3yo Hard Spun colt trained by Joe Sharp. Stakes winning sprinter. Last ran May 28 on Preakness undercard in Chick Lang Stakes. Stumbled at start and didn't run well. Wonder if he got hurt and took time off.
I remember Malpais. I haven't heard anything. I've been wondering about Out For A Spin, too. Nothing since KY Oaks day. It's really hard not to worry when these horses just drop off the map all of a sudden. I hope they are both okay and just taking a breather.

OUT FOR A SPIN
posted a 3F workout Sept 3 at Churchill.

Lucullan finished 3rd in the Woodbine Mile (G1) but was DQd to 4th place due to bearing out and interfering with another runner.

Afleet Destiny entered in the G1 Cotillion at Parx on Saturday, September 21.
Spun to Run entered in the G1 PA Derby at Parx on Saturday, September 21.

Both up against stiff competition. Noticed Spun to Run has the highest last race speed rating. Big jump from his run in the Haskell. Seems he is really improving of late. Hope he doesn't bounce. This is only 3 weeks between races.

Pletcher was pointing SPINOFF to the PA Derby but he's not entered. Does anyone know why?
