The 2018 Horse of the Year McWicked has been scratched from Sunday night's $100,000 Potomac Invitational Pace at Rosecroft Raceway. He was the morning-line favorite in the race.
Trainer Casie Coleman posted on Facebook that she had to scratch McWicked, who is nearing the $5-million mark in career earnings, after he spiked a fever.
Here is Coleman's post: "I wanna apologize to the fans who were hoping to see Mcwicked at Rosecroft tonight. He has been in Jersey over a week and been great, he was great this am. His caretaker went to go get him a bit ago to ship for tonight and he hadn't ate his lunch (very unusual for wicked he eats everything). He felt warm so he checked his temp and he was high, even used a second thermometer both read the same.
"Sadly we do gotta do what’s right for him and scratch him tonight. The vet came in on a Sunday pulled blood and treating his temp and I’m sure he will hopefully get over this quick and be able to still go to the TVG."
