Snell Yeah won’t race at Keeneland today after all

Here’s a bit of a bummer for those of you headed to Keeneland today: Snell Yeah, the horse name after former Kentucky star Benny Snell, has been scratched from his debut race this afternoon.

According to the Herald-Leader, Snell Yeah wasn’t breathing 100 percent this morning so his trainer removed him from today’s race, a 4 1/2 furlong race for maidens at 1:39 p.m. Have no fear; his owner said they’ll attempt to get Snell Yeah into another maiden race on April 25 at Keeneland, and if he’s still not good enough to go, a race at Churchill Downs next month.
