Cupid out of Kentucky Derby, Mo Tom Now In

Cupid out of Kentucky Derby, Mo Tom Now In

Trainer Bob Baffert told Daily Racing Form’s Jay Privman that Cupid is no longer under Kentucky Derby consideration. Baffert confirmed a Daily Racing Form report earlier today that Cupid would miss the Kentucky Derby and undergo surgery for an entrapped epiglottis.

The defection now sends Mo Tom to #20 and in the starting gate for the Derby. A revised Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard is below.
