Horse Racing Radar has confirmed with trainer Robertino Diodoro that AVA'S GRACE (M/L: 50:1) has been scratched from the Kentucky Oaks. He told Churchill Downs Media that he was not satisfied with the filly's condition.
According to Daily Racing Form, Diodoro was concerned about her right shoulder and planned to have a nuclear scintigraphy scan done. This is a tool that helps isolate potential sources of lameness. He told Horse Racing Radar's Shawn Drupp via text message that "She will be okay. Just bad timing."
