Classic news: Chavez to ride 'Albert'


ELMONT, N.Y. - Trainer Nick Zito said on Thursday that Jorge Chavez will be back aboard Albert the Great in the Breeders' Cup Classic.

Chavez, who guided Albert the Great to victory in last year's Jockey Club Gold Cup and to three graded stakes wins this year, was replaced by Gary Sevens for last week's Gold Cup, where Albert finished fourth. Stevens has not made a commitment yet for the Classic.
