Mike Puype, trainer for Breeders' Cup Marathon winner Calidoscopio told the Daily Racing Form that the 10-year-old horse ran in the Tokyo City Cup at Santa Anita with a grabbed quarter suffered in training the previous day.

Calidoscopio was evaluated and Puype decided “enough” treatment had been done that the horse could run. He finished fifth in the Cup as the 5-2 favorite.

“I would have scratched him if I didn't think he was good,” said Puype. He reported on Sunday that the affected foot was “really sore.”
