Acclamation's Return Put On Hold

Acclamation, the champion older male of 2011, has had his comeback put on hold.
The two-time winner of both the Jim Murray and Charles Whittingham Memorial Handicaps was scratched from Friday night’s $100,000 Inglewood Handicap at Betfair Hollywood Park.
Don Warren, who trains the 6-year-old California bred for owner-breeders Bud and Judy Johnston and Peter and Mary Hilvers, said the decision was made after the son of Unusual Heat galloped Thursday morning.
“We think he’s OK, but he took a couple of bad steps after he galloped yesterday morning,’’ said Warren. “He looked fine this morning. We took x-rays and everything was nice and clean and cold.
“We didn’t take him out to gallop (Friday morning). We’re not sure what was going on, but I saw what I saw and we can’t take any chances. He’ll go back to the track tomorrow and we’ll see if he’s OK.’’
A five-time winner over the Betfair Hollywood Park turf course, Acclamation hasn’t run since winning the Grade II Clement L. Hirsch last Oct. 2 at Santa Anita. The victory was his fifth in a row and pushed his earnings to $1,628,048. Overall, the bay has won nine of 28.
A Grade III at 1 1/8 miles on turf, the Inglewood is the third of nine races on the first Friday night card of the Spring/Summer meet.
Those remaining in the 72nd renewal are 2010 Hollywood Derby winner Haimish Hy, Utopian, Smug and Holladay Road.
