Dark clouds rolled in during Breeders' Cup training hours on Thursday, and then as dirt training drew to a close, rainfall began, forcing the cancellation of the scheduled turf session. Several European horses were already on the main track waiting to enter, and when denied access to the 7 furlong Matt Winn Turf Course, heated arguments ensued between trainers John Gosden and Sir Michael Stoute, and Churchill's maintenance crew.
Drosselmeyer galloped before the rain arrived Thursday morning in preparation for the Breeders' Cup Classic. Last year’s Belmont Stakes winner is looking for only his second victory since that race for trainer Bill Mott.
