If you were looking for some sense of normalcy in New York following the wild and woolly Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships, you were in for a rude awakening.
When racing resumes at Belmont Park on Wednesday after five days of cancellations due to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the stakes schedule will continue as published, according to the New York Racing Association. However, because of conflicts with other stakes races during the fall meet, four of the five graded stakes cancelled last weekend--the Ruffian, Belmont Breeders' Cup, Matron and Futurity--will not be rescheduled.
Jostle heads the $200,000 Cotillion Handicap (gr. II) at Philadelphia Park Saturday. The 3-year-old daughter of Brocco will face seven other sophomore fillies as the 124 pound highweight, conceding from eight to 13 pounds to her rivals in the 1 1/16-mile race.
