Pilgrim, Miss Grillo Moved to Monday

Due to the potential of inclement weather on Sunday in the New York metropolitan area, The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has rescheduled the Grade 3, $150,000 Miss Grillo and the Grade 3, $150,000 Pilgrim, both Breeders’ Cup Challenge races run on the turf, for Monday, October 8.

The 1 1/16-mile Miss Grillo, for 2-year-old fillies, is a “Win and You’re In” automatic qualifier for the Grade 1, $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. The Pilgrim for 2-year-olds, also contested at 1 1/16 miles on turf, is an automatic qualifier for the Grade 1, $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf.

If the winner of either race is nominated to the Breeders’ Cup program by October 22, Breeders’ Cup will pay the $30,000 in entry fees and provide a $10,000 travel allowance to the winning stable to start in the Breeders’ Cup, which will be held November 2-3 at Santa Anita.

Under Breeders’ Cup Challenge rules, if either the Miss Grillo or the Pilgrim is taken off the turf and run on the main track, the race winner will not earn the automatic berth or the free entry and travel benefits into the corresponding Breeders’ Cup World Championships race. A decision to move Breeders’ Cup Challenge race off the turf to the main track is left to the sole discretion of the host track or host racing association.
