NEW YORK (AP) - Honor Code will miss the Wood Memorial on April 5 and the Kentucky Derby a month later because of a slight ligament tear.

Trainer Shug McGaughey said Sunday the injury to the upper right hind leg will heal and he’ll wait 60 days before re-evaluating the 3-year-old colt.

Honor Code finished second in his season debut March 12 at Florida’s Gulfstream Park after winning the Remsen Stakes in November. He had worked out Saturday in preparation to run in the $1 million Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. The Kentucky Derby is May 3 at Churchill Downs.

McGaughey saddled Orb to victory in last year’s Kentucky Derby.
