Funny Cide out of Kings Point
OZONE PARK, N.Y. -- Funny Cide, the 2003 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, will not make his season debut in the $75,000 added Kings Point Handicap Sunday at Aqueduct.
Trainer Barclay Tagg, unhappy with the 127-pound weight assignment for the 1 1/8-mile race against New York-breds, decided to scratch.
"I haven't officially scratched yet, but it's definite he won't run," Tagg said Saturday in the Aqueduct paddock before his Changing World ran second in the Beaugay. "The weight was the major factor."
