Bodemeister to get physical exam


Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Three-year-old colt Bodemeister, second in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, will be receiving a physical examination at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital.

"Bodemeister being sent to Rood and Riddle for a complete physical today," trainer Bob Baffert posted on his Twitter account Wednesday morning.

Owned by Zayat Stables, Bodemeister has not raced since finishing second to I'll Have Another in the Preakness on May 19. The colt was scheduled to start in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on July 29, but was withdrawn after developing a fever.

Bodemeister won the Arkansas Derby by almost 10 lengths before setting the pace in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. Both times he was caught nearing the wire by I'll Have Another, who posted wins of 1 1/2 lengths and a neck, respectively.
