Report: Mutasaabeq Off Derby Trail With ‘Minor Shin Issue’

The dual-surface capable Mutasaabeq has been removed from consideration for the 2021 Kentucky Derby, reports DRF‘s Mike Welsch on Twitter. A 3-year-old son of Into Mischief, the colt exited his latest workout with a “minor shin issue.”

Trainer Todd Pletcher had been pointing the Shadwell-owned Mutasaabeq to Saturday’s G3 Holy Bull Stakes, after the colt impressed in his 3-year-old debut on the dirt in the Jan. 2 Mucho Macho Man Stakes.

As a juvenile, Mutasaabeq finished third in the G1 Hopeful on dirt, then won the G2 Bourbon on turf before finishing off the board in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. Out of the winning Scat Daddy mare Downside Scenario, a half-sister to Group 3 winner and $844,783 earner Cool Cowboy, Mutasaabeq was a $425,000 weanling at the 2018 Keeneland November sale.
