Fed Biz 'tied up,' trainer Bob Baffert said, and will miss the San Felipe on Saturday.

Fed Biz, an impressive allowance race winner, will miss the $300,000 San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita on Saturday, trainer Bob Baffert said Wednesday.

“I had a little setback with him, not bad, though,” Baffert said. “It’s nothing serious.

“I don’t know if he got cast or what. He tied up a little on me.”

Baffert said that he will run Liaison, the winner of the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity in December, and Bodemeister, who received a 101 Beyer Speed Figure for his maiden victory last month, in the San Felipe.

The Grade 2 San Felipe is a key prep to the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby on April 7.
