Morning Line, winner of the Grade 1 Carter Handicap last month at
Aqueduct, will not run in Monday's Grade 1 $500,000 Metropolitan
Handicap as scheduled, due to a foot issue, trainer Nick Zito confirmed
Zito said that Morning Line had some tenderness in his left front foot
after being shod at Churchill Downs recently and though the horse did
not miss any training time, Zito said he couldn't get a proper workout
into Morning Line in time to make the Met Mile.
