Sore Foot May Keep Atomic Rain Out of Haskell

Decision to be made on July 30.

A sore foot could keep Atomic Rain from taking on BlackBerry Preakness (gr. I) winner Rachel Alexandra and Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Summer Bird in the Aug. 2 Haskell Invitational (gr. I) at Monmouth Park.

Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin Stable, which bought the colt from George and Lori Hall last week, is expected to make a decision on Atomic Rain the morning of July 30.

Already on the grounds at Monmouth Park are Summer Bird; Arkansas Derby (gr. II) winner Papa Clem; Continental Mile stakes winner Bunker Hill; and Iowa Derby winner Duke of Mischief .

Rachel Alexandra is scheduled to arrive the morning of July 31 from Saratoga.

Munnings  will be shipped from Belmont Park the day of the race.
