Funny Cide out of Pimlico Special


As expected, Funny Cide scratched out of Friday's Grade 1, $500,000 Pimlico Special and will instead run in Saturday's $100,000 William Donald Schaefer Handicap on the Preakness undercard.

The scratch of Funny Cide left a field of five in the Special. Wanderin Boy, trained by Nick Zito is the 8-5 morning-line favorite.
