An unspecified injury will prevent Fury Kapcori from running in Saturday's Robert Lewis Stakes for 3-year-olds.

ARCADIA, Calif.- Fury Kapcori, second in the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity at Betfair Hollywood Park in December, will miss the $200,000 Robert Lewis Stakes for 3-year-olds at Santa Anita this Saturday, trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said on Sunday.

“He’s got a little problem,” Hollendorfer said. “It might cost him a little time.”

Hollendorfer did not elaborate on what will keep Fury Kapcori out of the Lewis or how much training or racing the Tiznow colt will miss.

Owned by a partnership that includes Hollendorfer, Fury Kapcori has won 2 of 5 starts and $221,000. By Tiznow, he won the Charlie Palmer Futurity at the Big Fresno Fair in October and was second in two stakes at Hollywood in the fall – the Real Quiet Stakes and the CashCall Futurity.

In the CashCall Futurity, Fury Kapcori led or disputed the pace and was beaten 1 1/4 lengths by the highly regarded Violence.

Fury Kapcori had been working steadily through January, including six furlongs in 1:12:40 at Hollywood Park on Jan. 19.

The Grade 2 Lewis Stakes is run over 1 1/16 miles and is a key prep for the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby on April 6. The race is led by He’s Had Enough, second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile here in November, and Flashback, a sharp maiden race winner at Hollywood Park in December.

The race is not expected to draw a large field.
