LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Bob Baffert is down to one horse for the Kentucky Derby after early 6-1 second choice Hoppertunity was scratched Thursday because of a sore left front foot. The colt was to have been ridden Saturday by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith. "Bad news travels fast," Baffert said outside his barn, where onlookers gathered as word spread around Churchill Downs. "The horse is OK. Hes just not 100 per cent and its too close to the race, so I pulled the plug." Baffert first noticed signs something wasnt quite right on Wednesday, when Hoppertunity took a few steps. The inside quarter of his left foot was sore, so part of his shoe was cut off. As the colt walked to warm up, he didnt appear bothered. But Baffert decided to scratch him anyway. Hoppertunity will have a full scan Thursday to eliminate any other possible problems than a sore foot, which will be soaked. In a bit of gallows humour, Baffert joked, "We missed a Hoppertunity." He said the colt could return in time for the Preakness on May 17. Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia revised the Derby morning line odds, although California Chrome remained the favourite at 5-2. Wicked Strong, the colt named for the victims of last years Boston Marathon bombings, replaced Hoppertunity as the early second choice at 6-1. Arkansas Derby winner Danza and Intense Holiday were installed as the co-third choices at 8-1. Tapiture was made the fifth choice at 12-1. The odds for Candy Boy were lowered to 15-1 from 20-1. Louisiana Derby winner Vicars In Trouble, to be ridden by Rosie Napravnik, dropped to 20-1 from 30-1. Smith will still be busy on Derby day, ridding in seven of the 13 races on the card. "I could still have a pretty good day," he said. "Id rather lose it this way than something happen on the track." The scratch moved also-eligible horse Pablo Del Monte into the maximum 20-horse field. However, the 50-1 shot would have to start from the No. 20 post position. It wasnt immediately known if Pablo Del Montes owners want to start under that condition. "Its amazing to have the opportunity to run," said Wesley Ward, who trains and co-owns the colt. "With my 25 per cent there is nothing Id love better, with a horse that I bred, than to run. But I have to go with what my partners want to do." The original plan for Pablo Del Monte, who was third in the Blue Grass, was to wait for the Preakness. His other owners are in Europe, and Ward expected to learn their decision later Thursday or early Friday. Hoppertunity had drawn the No. 11 post. With his scratch, the other horses in the outside starting gate all moved up one spot. Blue Grass winner Dance With Fate will now break from the 11th spot. Baffert has another horse in the race, 20-1 shot Chitu. That colt also has had foot problems and recently threw one of his shoes. "Ive had a lot of luck here," said Baffert, a three-time Derby winner, "so I cant really complain."

Ted Charney, a Toronto lawyer who is suing the CHL on behalf of former junior players, said because his case has one named representative plaintiff, others can avoid being publicly identified, protecting their hockey careers. Weve been talking to several players over the past several weeks but none of them wanted to be the representative plaintiff, Charney told TSN in an interview. They dont want to jeopardize their careers by being the face of the lawsuit. On Friday, Sam Berg, the son of former Toronto Maple Leaf player Bill Berg, sued the CHL, the governing body for 60 teams in the Ontario Hockey League, Western Hockey League and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. A statement of claim filed by Berg on behalf of himself and thousands of other players seeks $180 million in outstanding wages, vacation, holiday and overtime pay and employer payroll contributions, according to legal documents obtained by TSN. In a note on his firms website, Charney wrote that he is looking for players who played for major junior teams as far back as October 2008. The beauty of this now is that other players dont ever have to go public, Charney said. Every member of the league is eligible for compensation and its like voting in an election. Their information is completely confidential. They will face no reprisals. The documents filed by Berg show players in the OHL receive $50 to $120 a week in compensation, while players in the QMJHL get $35 to $150, depending on the age of the player. Those aged 16 to 19 get $50 a week in the OHL and $35 a week in the QMJHL. The Toronto Star first reported Bergs lawsuit. While Bergs lawsuit alleges players work as much as 65 hours per week or more, Berg said he was paid $50 a week by the OHLs Niagara IceDogs in 2013.dddddddddddd On average, Sam devoted about six hours a day, seven days a week to providing services to the team, his lawsuit says. When the team traveled, he would devote longer hours, up to 12 hours a day. After he was demoted to Junior B hockey, a shoulder injury ended his career. The OHL allegedly reduced his university scholarship package from four years to half a year, Berg alleges. CHL president David Branch has repeatedly said that players in the CHL are student athletes, and are well compensated, thanks largely to an education program the league has in place that provides some players with university scholarships when they are done playing. The IceDogs coach told The Star that Berg breached his contract when he failed to show up at training camp. Bergs allegations have not been proven in court. Several NHL player agents said the CHL has known for months that a lawsuit like this one might be looming, and sought to change its standard players contract. Instead of describing players as employees or independent contractors, players are now described as student athletes. Charney said its unclear how long the case will take to wind its way through the courts. A class action lawsuit against Maple Leaf Foods over lysteria outbreak was wrapped up in six months, he said, because the company did a mea culpa. I guess it depends whether we have a material disagreement with the CHL over the facts here. Charney said he expected the case would be assigned to a judge and a case conference would be held outlining a prospective schedule before Christmas.
