Breeders’ Futurity Favorite Mind Control Scratched After Spiking Fever

Red Oak Stable and Madaket Stables’ Hopeful (G1) winner Mind Control was declared out of today’s Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland because of an elevated temperature.

“We came in yesterday at 5 in the morning and his temperature was 102, and it stayed that way until 4 in the afternoon and we treated him,” said Rick Sacco, brother of trainer Greg Sacco. “By 6 o’clock, he was fine.”

Mind Control was the 7-2 morning-line favorite for the Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity, a “Win and You’re In” race for the $2 million Sentient Jet Breeders Cup Juvenile (G1) to be run Nov. 2 at Churchill Downs.

“He’s perfect this morning,” Sacco said. “We did bloodwork on him again this morning and if it comes back perfect he will be on a 6 a.m. Tex Sutton flight back to Monmouth tomorrow and train up to the Breeders’ Cup.”
