Trainer Linda Rice today said that TwinSpires.com Wood Memorial contender Kid Cruz would miss tomorrow's Grade 1, $1 million race due to a sore shoulder.


"He was showing a little soreness after his last race [a victory in the Private Terms at Laurel Park] and after he breezed Wednesday, he was not quite up to where we wanted him to be at this point," said Rice, who trains the Lemon Drop Kid colt for Vina Del Mar Thoroughbreds and Black Swan Stable. "It's disappointing, but we'll give him some more time between races and possibly look at the Illinois Derby [April 19 at Hawthorne Park]."


Kid Cruz, who is named for New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, was claimed for $50,000 last November by Vina Del Mar Thoroughbreds from Black Swan Stable, which later bought back a share of the colt. Overall, he is 2-1-0 from four starts with earnings of $101,375.
