Great Point injured, out of Florida Derby

Email

Trainer Nick Zito has taken Great Point off the list of potential starters for the $1 million Florida Derby. Great Point injured an ankle leaving the gate during the Fountain of Youth Stakes on March 4, subsequently developed some filling in a hock and as a result won't be ready in time to compete in the Grade 1 Florida Derby on April 1.
