Quality Road Odds of Winning 2009 Kentucky Derby in Doubt

Quality Road Derby Odds

As one of the early favorites to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby with odds of +600 (6/1) at SBG Global, Quality Road showed plenty of promise.  But now his chances of making a Kentucky Derby appearance seem in doubt.

Bloodhorse.com is reporting that Quality Road has developed another quarter-crack, this one on the inside of his right-front hoof, putting his status for the Run for the Roses in question.

"He wasn't sore or anything," said trainer Jimmy Jerkens. "We brought him in to pull his shoes afterward and that's when we noticed it."

Still, Jerkins was optimistic that Quality Road could still make the Derby.  How effective he might be remained the million dollar question for Gambling911.com readers.

 "I saw Quality Road (Thursday) morning and that's when we noticed the crack," McKinlay said. "I did him up with Animalintex (poultice), which draws out the infection. This morning, the crack was very clean. Obviously, he didn't go to the track, so they tubbed him. They'll dry him up and I'll see him later this afternoon.

"It was a straight crack, with no infection. I really don't think it is as serious as the other one (right-hind quarter crack). If we were able to get right on top of it, I'll probably lace it this afternoon. You have to remember that we are dealing with a living organism and it has a mind of its own. There is only so much we can do, and then we hope for the best. I'll know more when I see him this afternoon, and Saturday morning will tell us a lot."
