The BC Marathon was one of the very few major stakes for stayers on the dirt, and there are few for turf.

Let's make it a 2f sprint for 2yos and call it the Juvenile Sprint.

"... the conditions of the race have not developed into a competition that we believe reaches the standard set by the remaining races comprising the Championships."

And who's to blame for that? Track secretaries who don't write distance races, horses that can't get the distance or trainers who can't train for it? Plenty of blame to go around.
