Woodbine's GII Bessarabian S. and the GII Royal North S. will be downgraded to Grade III status, The Jockey Club of Canada's Graded Stakes Committee said via a press release early Friday.

After their annual review of the Graded and Listed Stakes slate, the organization added that all three of the top levels will remain at 42 races.

The Committee reviewed the North American Race Committee (NARC) figures and the Race Quality Scores (RQS) for all Graded, Listed, and potentially Listed races in Canada. Based on this data, they also determined that the Century Mile H., Hamilton S. and Speed to Spare Championship will be upgraded to Listed status.
