Lost in the Fog remains feisty


Lost in the Fog, who was diagnosed with inoperable cancer at the University of California at Davis last week, remains his normal, aggressive self in his stall at Golden Gate Fields.

The 2005 Eclipse Award champion sprinter even took a nip at his veterinarian, Dr. Nancy Lord, when she visited during routine rounds of the barn Tuesday morning.

Trainer Greg Gilchrist, currently at the yearling sale in Ocala, Fla., is scheduled to return to California Wednesday night.

Gilchrist's staff is carrying on with business as usual, but the mood at the barn is undeniably subdued.
