Top Colt Sidelined

Juvenile champion Boston Harbor, the star of trainer D. Wayne Lukas’ contingent of Kentucky Derby candidates, broke his left foreleg in training at Santa Anita, sidelining him for months.

The injury knocked Boston Harbor out of the picture for the Derby on May 3, at the very least.

Rick Waldman, stallion syndicate manager for Overbrook Farm in Lexington, Ky., said the colt was diagnosed with a nondisplaced fracture of the cannon bone.

Lukas said the injury occurred when Boston Harbor “took a bad step” pulling up from a morning workout, Lukas said the injury was not career-threatening.
