Big Brown Out Of Breeders' Cup

NEW YORK (AP) - Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Big Brown
will likely miss the Breeders' Cup Classic after injuring his right
front foot during a workout at Aqueduct on Monday.

Trainer Rick Dutrow says the 3-year-old colt appeared to kick
himself while working on the turf course at Aqueduct with
stablemate Kip Deville. Big Brown was able to complete the
six-furlong work when Dutrow noticed blood coming out of the foot.

Dutrow said he's not sure how badly the foot is injured but said
it doesn't look like Big Brown will travel to Santa Anita for the
Breeders' Cup in less than two weeks.

The Classic was expected to be Big Brown's final race before he
was retired to stud.
