Breeders' Cup contender scratched with fever

Posted:

Prayer for Relief has developed a fever and has been scratched from Saturday's Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs. That leaves a 12-horse field for the $5 million dollar race.

Prayer for Relief started the year with four straight wins before a third-place finish in the Oklahoma Derby his last time out.

Officials say the 3-year-old colt will remain at trainer Bob Baffert's barn in California.

Baffert still has a contender in the Classic: Santa Anita Handicap winner Game On Dude.
