Rags to Riches to miss Coaching Club American Oaks
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Elmont, NY (Sports Network) - Belmont Stakes winner Rags to Riches will not make her return to the races in Saturday's $300,000 Coaching Club American Oaks at Belmont Park. The leading three-year-old filly has a fever preventing her from making her first start since winning the Belmont Stakes on June 9.
"Her temperature has been slightly elevated the last couple of mornings and we had to postpone a scheduled breeze that was to take place this morning," said trainer Todd Pletcher. "We will point her towards the Alabama, at Saratoga on August 18."
Only the third filly to capture the Belmont Stakes, Rags to Riches has been perfect this year in five starts while earning more than $1.29 million. She is trained by Pletcher for owners Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith.
