The American Graded Stakes Committee has reviewed the running of the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame Stakes that was taken off the turf at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 9 and determined the original grade II status will not be reinstated.

The 2013 renewal of the race, automatically downgraded one level to a grade III event when moved to the main track, has been recorded as a grade III race by the committee.

The winner of the race, Repole Stable's Notacatbutallama, is therefore credited with a grade III win. Runner-up North Slope and third-place finisher Battier are credited with grade III placings.
