Kentucky Derby Path: Mystery of Shared Belief continues

January 24th, 2014

By J.J. Hysell

The status of Shared Belief, the undefeated champion 2-year-old male, is now a mystery.

The son of Candy Ride, a popular Kentucky Derby contender part-owned by sports radio host Jim Rome’s Jungle Racing, has been sidelined recently by an abscess in his right front hoof.

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer indicated to multiple sources this week that Shared Belief would likely work Friday morning.

Shared Belief didn’t work, however, and everyone’s left in the dark as to why.

According to the Santa Anita press notes, when asked about the missed work, Hollendorfer said “There is no update.”

Hollendorfer was asked again and replied: “I don’t have any news for the next 15 days.”

Shared Belief was being pointed to the Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 8, but now his status is unclear.

Stay tuned.

    If I ever owned a horse like that, I’d be in ZERO ZERO ZERO rush, TC or not.
