Far From Over (Blame), the unbeaten colt last seen taking the Withers (G3) at
Aqueduct on February 7, has been withdrawn from Kentucky Derby (G1)
consideration after he was diagnosed with a non-displaced condylar fracture of
his left hind leg.
The injury was discovered after X-rays were taken following his latest
workout at Palm Beach Downs last Saturday.
Owned by Black Rock Thoroughbreds and trained by Todd Pletcher, Far From Over
was an intended starter in Saturday’s
Memorial (G1) at Aqueduct, which was to be his final Kentucky Derby prep.
Far From Over impressively rallied to win the 1 1/16-mile Withers by 1 3/4
lengths after a slow break saw him trail the field of six most of the way.
The colt debut over Aqueduct’s inner dirt December 12, when he won a maiden
race by a nose going one mile and 70 yards.
