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.
