Kentucky Derby disappointment Itsmyluckyday is expected to be sidelined up to four months with an injury in his pelvic area.

HAT HOTTIES

The racing is great, but the fans put on the real show at the Kentucky Derby.

Itsmyluckyday, who was pulled up in the Pegasus Handicap at Monmouth Park on Saturday, was diagnosed with a slight fracture of the Ilium, trainer Eddie Plesa said Wednesday, adding that prospects for the colt returning to racing are very good.

The winner of the Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park earlier this year, Itsmyluckyday finished second to Kentucky Derby winner Orb in the Grade 1 Florida Derby, but was a disappointing 15th in the Run for the Roses. The colt rebounded with a second to Oxbow in the Preakness Stakes.

Itsmyluckyday has five wins in 13 starts, good for earnings of $830,100.
