Winslow Homer off Derby trail

Winslow Homer
Holy Bull S. (G3) winner WINSLOW HOMER (Unbridled's Song) is off the Kentucky Derby (G1) trail after the discovery of a stress fracture in a cannon bone, according to a statement by owner Rick Porter on his website.

"Winslow Homer had a little sensitivity in his shin Sunday morning. We went over him with a fine-toothed comb and found a small stress fracture in his cannon bone, resulting in Winslow having to go on the shelf for the next 60-90 days," Porter said. "Winslow should return to training in early April. This is another tough luck story for me and the Fox Hill (Farm) fans but hopefully we will have a huge summer and fall with Winslow Homer."

Conditioned by Tony Dutrow, Winslow Homer has won his last three races since dropping his Delaware Park debut by a neck in July. He rebounded from that third-place finish to record a three-length maiden win at Saratoga over seven furlongs on August 22. He returned on November 20 and captured an allowance over a mile at Philadelphia Park by 12 1/2 lengths.

tough luck for sure he ran strong in the holy bull
No joke. One after another.
How much bad luck can Rick Porter and Fox Hill have with grays? Winslow Homer, Old Fashioned and Eight Belles. Amazing. The only thankful thing is Larry Jones is not involved.
