Encino out of the Kentucky Derby, Epic Ride is in

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Encino won’t run in the Kentucky Derby this weekend, trainer Brad Cox said Tuesday.

The colt was a 20-1 shot on the morning-line for the 150th edition on Saturday. Cox didn’t immediately give a reason for the decision. That leaves the trainer with early 8-1 third-choice Catching Freedom and Just a Touch for the 1¼-mile race.

Epic Ride now joins the 20-horse field. The colt trained by John Ennis is listed as 50-1 on the morning line. Adam Beschizza will make his Derby debut in the saddle.
