Smiling Tiger, third in the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Sprint and winner of
seven sprint stakes, may not start in the BC Sprint at Churchill Downs
on Nov. 5, trainer Jeff Bonde said Thursday.
Smiling Tiger has not had a workout since late September and has not
raced since finishing fourth in the Grade 1 Pat O’Brien Stakes at Del
Mar on Aug. 28.
“We’ve had a few issues and we’re trying to determine whether we can
make it,” Bonde said. “I don’t have any answers yet. He acts jarred up.”
