BETTOR SWEET SCRATCHED FROM GRADUATE FINAL

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- May 15, 2009 -- World record holder Bettor Sweet has been scratched from Saturday's $210,000 Graduate Final at the Meadowlands due to an infection.

"We had some sick horses in the barn and when I scoped him earlier this week, he was clean," trainer Joseph Poliseno told the Meadowlands on Friday afternoon. "Today, I scoped him again, and he has a guttural pouch infection."

A guttural pouch is an air-filled out-pouching of the auditory or Eustachian tube.

In last week's Graduate elim, the four-year-old gelding paced a world record 1:47.2.

Host Mike Curci talked with Poliseno Friday afternoon on the Meadowlands Insider web radio show about the scratch and Poliseno's chances with his other Graduate entrant, Western Shore. To listen, go to: njhorseracing.com.
