Encino will not play in the 150th Kentucky Derby

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Trainer Brad Cox has confirmed that his horse, Encino, will not run in the 150th Kentucky Derby, according to Churchill Downs publicist Kevin Kerstein.

This is the first scratch for this year’s Run for the Roses, paving the way for Epic Ride to join the field for Saturday’s race. Encino was a longshot to win, at 20-1 odds. He was one of Cox’s three entries in the Kentucky Derby.

This is a developing story. We will add more details as they become available.
