ARCADIA >> Lord Nel­son, the early 5-2 se­cond wa­ger­ing choice, has been scratched from the Breed­ers’ Cup Sprint with a mi­nor in­jury.

Trainer Bob Baf­fert says Lord Nel­son de­vel­oped an in­fec­tion from a small cut in his right front leg.

He says the horse needed an­tibi­otics so he won’t be able to run in the $1.5 mil­lion race on Satur­day at Santa Anita.

The de­fec­tion of Lord Nel­son on Thurs­day leaves a field of seven in the Sprint.

Jok­ing was scratched on Wed­nes­day.

Masochis­tic is the early 2-1 fa­vorite for the six-fur­long race.
