Casino Drive Out?

It’s possible that Casino Drive may be absent from the starting gate tomorrow:

“Right now our decision is to run … We didn’t like his way of moving,” said Nobutaka Tada, the racing manager for owner Hidetoshi Yamamoto. “So we just didn’t go to the track this morning. He’s just walking in the shed. Tomorrow morning we will see.”

Tada said it was not clear why Casino Drive was walking differently than he usual.

“[It] may be a stone bruise,” Tada said. “We don’t know yet. He’s not lame, he’s just slightly [off] …. We’ll see tomorrow how he does. We entered the horse, we are going ahead with the horse, we are preparing for the race.”

Tada said a veterinarian had examined Casino Drive, and further evaluations would be made throughout the day on Friday.

“We’re always honest [with the media],” Tada said. “We don’t hide anything.”

Here’s hoping he’s fit…or that it’s some sort of elaborate mind game. I don’t want a coronation without a fight. Given the personalities involved in this year’s Triple Crown, I hope with equal fervor that no sort of deal was done behind the scenes…
