Gladding scratched from Longacres Mile | Emerald Downs

Gladding has a fever and is officially scratched from The Longacres Mile, trainer John Sadler said.

The second choice at 3-to-1 on the morning line, Gladding spiked the fever shipping from Southern California to Washington, and had a 104-degree temperature when he arrived here early Friday morning. With Gladding out, morning line-maker Rob Rao lowered Awesome Gem form 5-to-2 to 2-to-1, with Hudson Landing the new second choice at 4-to-1.
