GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS -- The Neil Drysdale-trained Sarafan injured his right foreleg when he banged it on a stall wall over the weekend and won't compete in the Breeders' Cup Turf.

JUVENILE FILLIES: Enduring Will, who won a stakes at Lone Star by 10 lengths, will miss the Juvenile Fillies. She came down with a fever.

FILLY AND MARE TURF: Stay Forever will remain at Calder rather than make the trip to Texas for the Filly and Mare Turf, said trainer Marty Wolfson. He said running her back in three weeks after her WinStar Galaxy win at Keeneland would be asking too much.

INJURIES: Trainer Todd Pletcher, who pre-entered six horses in the Breeders' Cup, is down to four after Ready's Gal, who would have run in the Juvenile Fillies, broke her right hind pastern. Balto Star will miss the Breeders' Cup because of a torn tendon in his right foreleg.
