Sidney’s Candy, who was withdrawn from Saturday’s San Fernando Stakes
at Santa Anita after he was found to be walking unsound Friday, will
undergo a nuclear scan test on his right hind leg Monday, trainer John
Sadler downplayed the severity of the problem, which he said was first noticed Friday.
“He was off a little behind,” Sadler said. “I don’t think it’s
serious. He wasn’t really 100 percent. It’s his right hind. I don’t
think it’s anything major.”
The nuclear scan test is more detailed than a conventional X-ray and can reveal hard-to-find injuries.
