McKinzie and Higher Power both aiming for BC. Too bad HP stumbled so badly out of the gate- he went to his nose.

Maybe Johnny V?

McKinzie will have new rider in Breeders' Cup Classic, per Baffert, who said he has informed Smith of change

McKinzie will have a new rider in the Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 2 at Santa Anita.

Trainer Bob Baffert on Tuesday said that he has decided to make a switch from Mike Smith, who has ridden McKinzie in all 13 of his career starts. This follows a second-place finish as the odds-on favorite in the Awesome Again Stakes on Saturday at Santa Anita, the colt's fourth second-place finish this year in six starts.

"I'm still going to use Mike on horses," Baffert said Tuesday. "But for the Classic, I'm going to make a change. I let Mike know now, because I want to give him a chance to get something else."

when Baffert was interviewed after the race you could hear veiled criticism of 

Smith in his responses--i am not surprised at the jockey change
