Believe You Can Out of Falls City

Churchill Downs’ 98th running of the $150,000-added Falls City Handicap (GII), the annual centerpiece of the popular Thanksgiving Day racing program, lost some of its pre-race glamour with news that Brereton C. Jones’ Believe You Can, winner of the 2012 Kentucky Oaks (GI), will not run in next week’s race.

Trainer Larry Jones confirmed via text that the homebred daughter of Proud Citizen would not run in the Falls City, but provided no other information.

Believe You Can last competed in the Ogden Phipps Handicap (GI) on May 27 at Belmont Park, where she ran sixth to Tiz Miz Sue. She has a career record of 14-8-0-2 and has earned $1,280,324.

With the defection of Believe You Can from the Falls City, known starters for the 1 1/8-mile race for fillies and mares on Thursday, Nov. 28 (with trainers) include: Don’t Tell Sophia (Philip Sims), Flashy American (Kenny McPeek), Ice Cream Silence (Rusty Arnold), and Magic Hour (Ian Wilkes). Possible: My Option (Chris Block), Street Girl (Eddie Kenneally), Molly Morgan (Dale Romans), Owl Moon (Romans) and Wine Princess (Steve Margolis).
