FILE - In this May 28, 2006, file photo, Sam Hornish Jr., left, pumps his fist as he beats Marco Andretti to the finish line to win the Indianapolis 500 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis. The Associated Press has updated its survey of living Indianapolis 500 winners and their pick as the greatest race in the long history of the event. There are six races that received multiple votes, topped by Al Unser Jr.’s victory over Scott Goodyear in 1992 — the closest Indy 500 in history. The others are Emerson Fittipaldi's win in 1989; Hornish's win in 2006; the 1982 battle between Rick Mears and Gordon Johncock; the 2011 race won by the late Dan Wheldon; and the 2014 thriller won by Ryan Hunter-Reay.

Nadal, who now won't have a shot after an ankle injury in training last week, could have been racing to become trainer Bob Baffert's third Triple Crown winner in six seasons, if not for the coronavirus pandemic. The Belmont Stakes usually wraps up a five-week span that includes the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. All have been pushed back, though the Belmont Stakes will now go first on June 20.
