Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin will be on pins and needles until he finds out definitely the extent of the injury that knocked Lieutenant Ron out of Saturday's Peter Pan Stakes. As of Thursday, it appeared to be just a bruised foot.

Lieutenant Ron, a son of Graeme Hall, would most likely have been favored in the Peter Pan off two rousing victories in which he earned triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures.

"I haven't been excited about a horse like this in a long time," said McLaughlin, trainer of 2006 Horse of the Year Invasor.

McLaughlin said he noticed something amiss with Lieutenant Ron Wednesday morning after the colt galloped.

"He galloped great, pulled up, got to the barn, and he was a little funny," McLaughlin said. "We have to proceed cautiously and figure it out."

McLaughlin said X-rays and an ultrasound came back negative.

"It might just be a bruised foot," McLaughlin said, hopefully.
