Trainer Kenny McPeek announced via Twitter this morning that his champion filly SWISS SKYDIVER will scratch from the Ogden Phipps (G1) due to a 104 degree fever. The filly was set for a showdown with LETRUSKA, who blew away SWISS SKYDIVER and MONOMOY GIRL at Oaklawn's Apple Blossom in April.
Trainer Todd Pletcher also announced a scratch this morning due to a similar issue with VALIANCE.
The Ogden Phipps is set as race 7 on Belmont's Saturday race card. It now has only five entries.
