SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Last year’s champion juvenile Hansen has been ruled out of consideration for this Saturday’s Grade 1, $1 million Travers at Saratoga Race Course.
“He had some inflammation in his left front leg this morning and is not running,” said trainer Mike Maker.
Owned by Dr. Kendall Hansen and Skychai Racing, the grey son of Tapit was undefeated as a 2-year-old including a win in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. This year he has added two Grade 3 victories to his resume from six starts.
The Travers field will be determined at today’s post position draw, scheduled for 11 a.m. in the Saratoga paddock.
