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.
