Email

For You Reppo was scratched from the Grade 2, $1 million Arkansas Derby on Saturday morning. He was one of the top contenders for the mile and an eighth race that will be run on Saturday at Oaklawn Park.

"He bruised his foot somehow," said his trainer, Helen Pitts. "I think he had a big shot."

The defection leaves a field of nine for the Arkansas Derby.

For You Reppo was fourth last out in the Grade 2, $500,000 Lane's End at Turfway Park on March 24. Before that he was second to Chelokee in an allowance a Gulfstream Park. For You Reppo is owned by Trident Stable and was to be ridden by Kent Desormeaux.
