Rattle N Roll Out Of Breeders’ Cup Juvenile With Hoof Abscess

Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity winner Rattle N Roll will not travel to Del Mar for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, trainer Ken McPeek revealed on Twitter over the weekend. The 2-year-old son of Connect exited his final workout with a possible abscess in his left hind hoof.

Owned by Lucky Seven Stable, Rattle N Roll is out of the winning Johannesburg mare Jazz Tune. He was a $210,000 yearling purchase at the Keeneland September sale. The colt  ran third in his debut over six furlongs at Churchill Downs on June 26, then when stretched out to two turns at Saratoga on Aug. 26, he bolted in the second turn and was pulled up.

McPeek regrouped with Rattle N Roll at Churchill on Sept. 23, where he won a 1 1/16-mile maiden race by three lengths. The colt wheeled back in Keeneland’s Breeders’ Futurity on Oct. 9, producing a 4 1/4-length victory.
