BALTIMORE — Morning-line favorite Muth, the Bob Baffert-trained colt who had just arrived at Pimlico Race Course from his Southern California training base, was scratched from Saturday’s 149th running of the Preakness Stakes on Wednesday morning after spiking a fever the night before.

“We are sick about this,” Baffert, the controversial Hall-of-Fame trainer, said in a statement. “The horse had been doing really well. But we have to do what’s right by the horse.”
