Morning Line Gets Time Off

Grade 1 Carter winner Morning Line, last in the Grade 1 Whitney on August 6, departed Saratoga Race Course Wednesday afternoon bound for owner Will Farish’s Lane’s End Farm in Kentucky.

“We took some X-rays of his knees and ankles, and nothing has changed there,” said Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito. “He looks good. They’ll give him some time off, and then let [Dr. Larry] Bramlage look at him and see what he says. Hopefully, he’ll come back and we’ll see the real Morning Line, because that sure wasn’t him the other day.”

Prior to the Whitney, the 4-year-old son of Tiznow was fifth as the favorite in the Grade 3 Salvator Mile, which marked the first time since his debut at Aqueduct in 2009 that he had finished off the board. Overall, Morning Line is 4-4-1 from 12 starts with earnings of more than $1.2 million.

a true mystery...obviously a game horse who has always had fight. For him to quit the last two races something must be amiss. Could have been short in the Salvator, but works after were solid. One of my favorite horses. Hope everything checks out good and he gets a clean bill of health.
