Bond Holder won’t be going home to California after another flight issue, the Doug O’Neill Racing Stable reported Sunday.
The colt, who scratched from Saturday’s Risen Star at Fair Grounds after being body sore due to flight issues from California, apparently didn’t like taking to the skies again. His plane was re-routed to Florida, where he will stay and train for the Tampa Bay Derby on March 8.
From O’Neill’s Facebook Page: “Bond Holder was not happy flying and was routed to Florida. Luckily, we had nominated him to the Tampa Bay Derby and so we will keep him in Florida to run there on March 8. Audible called, but that is horse racing!”
