Street Cry, the top Kentucky Derby hope of the Godolphin Stable, will miss the first round of the Triple Crown with an injury.
According to Godolphin.com, the son of Machiavellian sustained an injury to his right front ankle. No other information was available and efforts to reach Godolphin personnel were unsuccessful. The latest information from Churchill Downs on Street Cry listed that he galloped Saturday morning.

The loss of Street Cry was the latest blow for Godolphin, which has struggled mightily in its efforts to win the Kentucky Derby. Godolphin has started three horses in the race, none of whom finished better than sixth.

The stable may still be represented in the Derby by Express Tour, who defeated Street Cry by a nose in the UAE Derby. However, Street Cry was considered the better of the two. Express Tour has had problems of his own, missing five days of training due to a bruised hoof.
