Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird still needs medical clearance before he runs in Saturday's Travers Stakes.
Mine That Bird had minor throat surgery last week. Trainer Chip Woolley says he and the owners don't want to take any chances with the health of the 3-year-old gelding.
After Mine That Bird returned from a Tuesday morning workout at Saratoga Race Course, Woolley said his Derby winner was fine after being examined. Another exam will be done Wednesday morning, just before entries are taken for the Travers.
Others set to run in the $1 million race for 3-year-olds are Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird, Jim Dandy winner Kensei and Florida Derby winner Quality Road.
