Sesamoid Injury Sidelines Secret Circle

Secret Circle beats Optimizer in 2012 Rebel Stakes.
Four-time stakes winner Secret Circle, most recently runner-up to stablemate Bodemeister in the Arkansas Derby (gr. I), will miss up to four months with a sesamoid injury, co-owner Mike Pegram confirmed April 19.

Pegram, who co-owns the son of Eddington with Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, said Secret Circle will not require surgery. He is hopeful the colt could return to training in August for Bob Baffert. The injury was discovered a couple days after he finished 9 1/2 lengths back of Bodemeister in the April 14 Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park.

Secret Circle had been pointing to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I).

That puts him back in mid-August. I wonder if he could make the Cigar Mile or Malibu. I'm sure Baffert would like to run him in the Malibu.
Good info CardlyKnot. Hope he comes back to run this year.
