Churchill: Updated Scratches for Saturday's Breeders' Cup - Crown of Thorns out of Dirt Mile


As a follow-up to Breeders' Cup scratches announced earlier, Crown of Thorns is now scratched from Saturday's Dirt Mile, David Grening reports.

His scratch comes due to “a reoccurrence of an injury to his right knee,” trainer Richard Mandella said Friday morning. “It’s nothing serious, but we can’t run him.”

Crown of Thorns was the 4-1 second choice on the morning line for the Dirt Mile.
