Breeders’ Cup Scratches: Mile Morning Line Favorite Polydream Is Out

The Churchill Downs racing office posted a total of four scratches from Friday and Saturday Breeders’ Cup cards. Most notably, Polydream (IRE), morning line favorite for the Mile, is out.

Shug McGaughey’s Juvenile contender Code of Honor, who was his sole Breeders’ Cup runner this year, is also out after the William S. Farrish homebred spiked a temperature Friday morning. Although he was admittedly disappointed, McGaughey told The Blood-Horse Code of Honor could be back in time for the Remsen in early December, depending on how quickly he recovers.

Shang Shang Shang, the Juvenile Turf Sprint morning line favorite, has also been scratched. Trainer Wesley Ward told the Daily Racing Form the horse was coming out due to soft turf. Churchill Downs received heavy rains Wednesday afternoon and throughout the day Thursday.

Additionally, Awesome Slew has been scratched from the Dirt Mile and Hunt (IRE) has been scratched from the Mile, per the Form’s Marty McGee.
