Trainer Ron Ellis says Atswhatimtalknbout is improving from the foot problem with his left fore, but he'll miss the Santa Anita meet. "He's making progress but it's going to be a little while," Ellis said of the late-running fourth-place finisher in last year's Kentucky Derby (gr. I).
"He won't run at this meet for sure. It's much a much more expansive abscess than we thought. It's healing but he's not training."
