Belmont Park: Sangaree out of Kelso

Godolphin Racing's Sangaree will be scratched from Saturday's Grade 2 Kelso Handicap at Belmont after developing a cough, assistant trainer Rick Mettee said Friday.

"He started coughing yesterday, and he continued this morning," said Mettee of the 6-year-old son of Awesome Again, who was listed at 6-1 on the morning line for the one-mile Kelso. "It's too bad, because we were looking forward to running him."

Mettee said Sangaree would most likely now be pointed to the Grade 3, seven-furlong Bold Ruler at Belmont on October 29. Sangaree is winless in five starts this year, most recently finishing second by a neck to Rule in the Birdstone overnight stakes at Saratoga Race Course.
