ELMONT, N.Y. – The multiple stakes winner Dacita will not make the Breeders’ Cup, trainer Chad Brown said, owing to a physical issue that will sideline her for the remainder of 2016.

Dacita won the Grade 1 Diana at Saratoga and the Grade 2 New York this year and most recently finished second by a nose in the Grade 2 Canadian at Woodbine.
