Saratoga: Cool Blue Red Hot to miss Jim Dandy


Cool Blue Red Hot, the third-place finisher in the Grade 2 Dwyer Stakes, will miss next Saturday’s Grade 2, $500,000 Jim Dandy at Saratoga after suffering from a bout of colic, trainer Angel Penna Jr. said Friday.

Penna said the colic bout was short-lived, but it forced him to miss an important work.

“The race is eight days away, that’s gone,” Penna said. “The problem was not a big deal, but the timing is not good. Now I can’t do the workout I needed to do.”

Without Cool Blue Red Hot, the Jim Dandy is expected to attract Alternation, Bonaroo, Brilliant Speed, Dominus, Scotus, Stay Thirsty, and Tech Fall.
