Owned by hotel and television magnate Merv Griffin , Stevie Wonderboy finished second behind Brother Derek in his 3-year-old debut in the Jan.14 San Rafael Stakes at Santa Anita in Arcadia, Calif. He was considered one of the early favorites for the Derby on May6.
"We're all disappointed, and Merv was upset," O'Neill said. "But the important thing is that he'll be back."

Everything okay, Adu says
Issues between Freddy Adu and the MLS's D.C. United have been resolved. Adu, 16, entering his third season, was suspended for a playoff game after complaining about playing time. Monday, United's first preseason workout, Adu said he had a meeting with coach Peter Nowak to clear the air. "It came down to an issue of miscommunication between myself and Peter," Adu said.
