Castle Village Farm’s six-year-old Alston Gunter skipped the Mister Diz Stakes at Pimlicon on Saturday, April 6th. Alston Gunter had recorded a bullet breeze, going a half mile in 47.4 on the Belmont training track on April 1st, but a couple of days later he was showing signs of gastric irritation and generally acting as if he wasn’t 100%. While tests should no obvious illness or injury, Bruce Brown and Steve Zorn elected to be cautious and passed on the Pimlico race.

Next steps for Alston Gunter will be decided when he’s feeling better.
