LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The morning-line favorite in the Kentucky Derby has scratched.
Omaha Beach will not run in Saturday's Kentucky Derby due to an entrapped epiglottis, which is a throat condition.
Trainer Richard Mandella says the horse will undergo surgery and will be out for a few weeks.
With the colt's scratch, Bodexpress will draw into the field and break from post position 20.
All horses outside of Omaha Beach, post positions 13 through 20, will move over one position in the starting gate.
