LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — Ethereal Road has been scratched from the Kentucky Derby.
Derby officials made the announcement early Friday morning. Rich Strike will take the horse's spot, and currently has 30-1 odds of winning.
Ethereal Road would have given Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas a chance at his fifth Kentucky Derby victory, and his first since 1999.
Rattle N Roll was also scratched as a potential replacement for Saturday's Derby.
