Hronis Racing's Accelerate has been scratched out of Saturday's Grade 2 San Diego Handicap, according to bloodhorse.com. The 5-year-old son of Lookin at Lucky is fine and will breeze on Sunday morning, said trainer John Sadler, in anticipation of a possible start on the east coast.

Accelerate's scratch was effected because of the presence of two of his fellow Hronis-owned stablemates in the San Diego lineup: Catalina Cruiser and Curlin Rules.
