Bribon not supplemented to Sprint

Trainer Todd Pletcher said he pre-entered 11 horses on Monday for the Breeders' Cup World Championships, to be held Nov. 5-6 at Churchill Downs. However, Bribon was not among them.

Owner Derrick Smith elected against paying the $180,000 supplemental fee to make Bribon eligible for the $2 million Breeders' Cup Sprint. Instead, Bribon will run in Saturday's Grade 3, $150,000 Bold Ruler Handicap at Belmont Park as a prep for the Grade 1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct on Nov. 27.

Pletcher said that several factors came into play in the decision not to run Bribon in the Breeders' Cup, including the fact that he is a 7-year-old gelding and a come-from-behind sprinter in what will likely be a large field. "And," Pletcher said, "$180,000 is a lot of money to put up."
