Leg problem affecting Casino Drive
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Elmont, NY (Sports Network) - Casino Drive, the 7-2 second choice for the Belmont Stakes, has an apparent problem with his left hind leg that kept him off the track Friday morning. The exact problem the colt is experiencing is unclear.
Nobutaka Tada, the racing manager for Casino Drive owner Hidetoshi Yamamoto, said the three-year-old will be closely watched over the next 24 hours. The winner of the Peter Pan Stakes is walking the shedrow after his connections observed a problem with his way of walking.
Tada stated that a veterinarian has examined Casino Drive. The colt may have a stone bruise of his left hind hoof, but details have not been released.
A final determination will be made Saturday morning on the colt's status for the Belmont Stakes.
