A cough forced the juggling of the training schedule for Sinister G at Belmont Park.
"It is touch and go right now," trainer John Toscano said. "He just jogged this morning and he coughed once coming back. We have him on antibiotics now and we will have to play the next couple days by ear. It is drizzling a bit here and it is cold and damp."
Sinister G is scheduled to work Saturday and ship Wednesday. "I might have to delay it (the work)," Toscano said. And when is the latest the colt could work and make the Derby? "He has to work by Monday."
