Trainer Kenny McPeek said Sunday morning that his unbeaten Ohio Derby (gr.II) winner Wild and Wicked will run in the Haskell Invitational (gr.I) instead of the Jim Dandy (gr.II) at Saratoga.
McPeek said a few factors played in the decision to send Mr. and Mrs. R. David Randal's Wild Again colt to New Jersey to face Funny Cide, Peace Rules and Sky Mesa.
"Five pounds from Funny Cide, $1 million, Grade I," McPeek said. "Those are probably the biggest three reasons. We only get two pounds from Empire Maker to run here for half the money."
