Win Willy Out Of Derby, Zito To Enter Nowhere TO Hide

Rebel Stakes winner Win Willy is out of
the Kentucky Derby.
Trainer Mac Robertson scratched the 3-year-old colt from
Saturday's Run for the Roses after X-rays revealed a possible crack
in the horse's left front ankle.
Win Willy burst onto the Derby scene in an upset at the Rebel
Stakes at Oaklawn, knocking off Old Fashioned as a 56-1 longshot.
He finished fourth in his last start in the Arkansas Derby.
Robertson said the horse was being examined Tuesday as a
precaution when the crack was noticed and that Win Willy will be
given a few months off to recuperate.
With the withdrawl of Win Willy Trainer Nick Zito says he will enter Nowhere To Hide in Saturday's race.
