ELMONT, N.Y. - There has been a change of plans for Graydar and there will most likely be a change in the way handicappers perceive his chances in the Breeders’ Cup. Graydar will run in the $1 million Dirt Mile on Friday at Santa Anita and not the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Saturday as originally planned, trainer Todd Pletcher said Saturday. Graydar, who has won 5 of 6 races, including the Grade 1 Donn in February, has only had one race since winning the Fair Grounds Handicap on March 30. Graydar, who had surgery to remove an ankle chip after that race, won the Grade 2 Kelso Invitational - a Win and You’re In race for the Dirt Mile - at Belmont on Sept. 28.
