A Shake-Up in the Derby Line-Up

For the second year in a row the winner of the Wood Memorial and would-have-been favorite in the Kentucky Derby is being pulled out of the Run for the Roses due to a health problem. In his place trainer Todd Pletcher is now expected to run the talented filly Devil May Care.

UPDATE: And now WinStar Farm's Rule isn't going to run either (he's instead being pointed to the Preakness). While not a favorite, I really liked Rule.
