A horse was hit with debris from a roof and was scratched from the Kentucky Derby undercard race

There's so much that goes into training for a race, so it's always sad to see a horse's path to greatness derailed—especially like this.

Poor Grand Tito was minding his own business before the big race when debris from a nearby roof fell and landed on the horse. It was noticeably startled by the hit to the head. But to make matters worse, it was scratched from the Turf Classic entirely as a result.

We hope Grand Tito is feeling better.
