Livin Lovin scratched from Delta Princess


Livin Lovin, the impressive winner of the Tempted Stakes at Aqueduct in her last start, has been scratched from Friday night's Grade 3, $500,000 Delta Princess at Delta Downs with a small chip in her left ankle, according to trainer Steve Klesaris.

Klesaris indicated that the 2-year-old daughter of Birdstone will have surgery and then be off two months. Klesaris expects Livin Lovin to rejoin his stable in the spring.
