I read about Colonel Mustard a while back on www.twitter/derbycontenders feed B-H is following. He was scratched from an earlier race. The FTS stats for the trainer and sire are low, but I'm most interested in seeing this one run.

R. Harden - Yes, Colonel Mustard was previously entered on Jan. 23 and scratched. However, it was the first day that Santa Anita returned to races after a series of cancellations. I believe he was simply scratched because they wanted to make sure that the track was safe. He has worked several times since then.
