Saratoga: Monday's Glens Falls Stakes to remain ungraded


The American Graded Stakes Committee has decided that Monday’s Glens Falls Stakes at Saratoga will remain ungraded, the committee said Thursday.

Originally a Grade 3 scheduled for 1 3/8 miles on Saratoga’s inner turf, the Glens Falls was one of six turf races moved to the main track on Saratoga’s closing day. Six of the original eight entrants in the Glens Falls were scratched, with five horses drawing in off the main-track-only list, including the favorite and winner, Lady Cohiba. It was run at 1 1/8 miles on a muddy track.

Under rules established by the American Graded Stakes Committee, any graded race that is moved off the turf is automatically downgraded one grade. The grade can only be reinstated following a review by the committee.
