CALDER: Scratch the favorite in the stakes

Email

I was shocked and frankly very surprised when walking in earlier this afternoon and learning that trainer Marty Wolfson had left all three of his entrants including Jessica Is Back in the Take D'Tour Stakes. Especially since he had named Elvis Trujillo, who obviously was not going to be riding here today, on the favorite. So it came as little surprise when the announcement just came that Jessica Is Back has been scratched from the main event, leaving Boleyn and Dash Dot Dash to carry the Wolfson hopes while completely changing the entire complexion of the overnight event.
