Hoppertunity Scratched From Derby 140

Trainer Bob Baffert pulls one of the favorites in this year's Run for the Roses.
One the favorites for Kentucky Derby 140 will no longer be running for the roses.  Hoppertunity was officially scratched this morning by trainer Bob Baffert.

Something just wasn't right in the horse's left foot.  It doesn't appear to be anything major at this point, but it's enough to pull him out of the first leg of the Triple Crown.

Hear from Baffert on the tough decision to pull his best shot in the Run for the Roses in the video.
