With the Thursday morning news that the top-class geldings Domestic Spending and United would be withdrawn from the $4-million Breeders’ Cup Turf, the complexion of the mile and one-half Grade 1 race has changed, Ray Paulick reports in Thursday’s Breeders’ Cup News Minute.
Klaravich Stable’s Domestic Spending, trained by Chad Brown, is a three-time G1 winner coming off a narrow defeat in the G1 Mr. D. Stakes (formerly the Arlington Million) at Arlington Park. LNJ Foxwoods’ United, trained by Richard Mandella, scored a nose victory last out in the G2 John Henry Turf Championship at Santa Anita.
Inflammation was detected on a leg in both horses on Thursday morning.
The scratches permit Aidan O’Brien-trained Bolshoi Ballet and front-running Bill Mott trainee Channel Maker into the field.
