E.K. Gaylord II’s Wilkinson, who registered a stunning 44-1 upset in the American Handicap May 26th, came down with colic Monday and has been ruled out of the Grade I, $300,000 Shoemaker Mile June 30th.

“At 6:30 (a.m.) he was in pain, got hot and wanted to lay down,” said Jeff Mullins’ assistant trainer Ral Ayers. “At first we thought we could handle it, but it got worse and he was on the van to West Coast Equine Hospital by 9 a.m. They had to cut him open and untangle the intestines. Luckily, no resection was needed.

“He’s doing OK now. It usually takes two months to recover and if everything looks good, he can go back into training.”
