Grand to try Grey as B.C. test


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Grand, a 2-year-old colt who was purchased by Barry Irwin of Team Valor Stable after a 23-length win on the dirt at Wolverhampton, England, on Sept. 7, is slated to make his next start at Woodbine in the Grade 2 Grey Stakes on Oct. 6.

"If he pulls off the Grey Stakes, we'll supplement him to the Breeders' Cup," said Irwin, who was at Woodbine on Sunday to watch Added Edge, an undefeated 2-year-old in whom he owns a controlling interest, win the Swynford Stakes.

Grand, an Irish-bred colt who will continue to be trained by Nick Littmoden, was making his fourth appearance while defeating three rivals over about 1 1/16 miles at Wolverhampton, having won his maiden on turf in his previous start at Newbury.
