Amazombie scratches from Palos Verdes

Amazombie, the champion sprinter of 2011, was scratched from Saturday’s $200,000 Palos Verdes Stakes at Santa Anita after rain fell early in the day.

 

Trainer Bill Spawr said repeatedly in the build-up to the Grade 2 Palos Verdes that he was reluctant to start Amazombie if considerable rain fell and the track was left as wet-fast, and firm.

 

With an hour to post time for Saturday’s first race, the track was listed as wet-fast, with the possibility of further rain through the afternoon.

 

Amazombie was the 9-5 favorite on the morning-line for the Palos Verdes Stakes, run over six furlongs. The race would have been his first start since a win in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at Churchill Downs in November. Canonize, a 20-1 outsider on the morning-line, was also scratched.
