The Ray Schnittker-trained and driven Royal Assets, who finished fourth in her Breeders Crown elimination and drew Post 8 for the $500,000 Breeders Crown Three-Year-Old Filly Trot, was scratched this morning (Tuesday, October 15).

Per the Breeders Crown conditions, the first also-eligible can opt to move into the race on the outside Post 9 of the remaining entrants. Linda Toscano, trainer of the also-eligible Southwind Cocoa, will start the filly from the Post 9 with Tim Tetrick in the bike, and Time To Kill (trained by Ross Croghan and driven by John Campbell) will move in one place to Post 8.

In the $500,000 Breeders Crown Two-Year-Old Filly Pace, elimination winner Gallie Bythe Beach was also scratched. The daughter of Breeders Crown champions Somebeachsomewhere and Galleria held a world record briefly in her elimination win of 1:50.3f, only to see it lowered two races later by Allstar Rating.

“She just didn’t come out of the race the way I wanted,” said trainer Jim Campbell. “I spoke with (owner) Jules Siegel and we decided we wanted to do what was right for her. We want to have a horse for next year and it was a decision we made together. You hate to scratch out of any race, especially the Breeders Crown.”

Because Gallie Bythe Beach drew Post 2, all but the rail horse moves in one slot, and Rockingcam Park, the AE1, will start from Post 9. Rockingcam Park is trained by Ron Coyne and will be driven by Brian Sears.

First-race post time for the October 19 Breeders Crown card at Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs will be 5:00 p.m. (EDT).
