The matchup everyone wanted will have to wait.
At Saratoga Race Course in August, Teodoro and Snap Decision won allowance hurdle races by 33 3/4 and 38 1/2 lengths respectively and were supposed to be in the same race Wednesday at Belmont Park. Alas, the steeplechase version of a science experiment (A+B=C) won’t happen as Teodoro will be scratched from the eight-horse field with a tendon injury. The $75,000 William Entenmann Memorial goes as scheduled and Wednesday’s first race (post time 3 p.m.) is still a fascinating tussle even if it’s a little like an old-school wrestling battle royal with Jimmy “Super Fly” Snuka but without Randy “Macho Man” Savage.
