Taking the pace to KG would have been the kiss of death on the Del Mar surface. I had secretly hoped Hot Rod Charlie would have done that.

MS ran a great race!!! Yes best 3 year old.

Agree. I saw a tweet "I hope people shut up now. Medina Spirit is simply the best 3yo colt horse in the US rn. and Bob Baffert is simply a good trainer. Drug no drug."

But haters gonna hate.

Medina Spirit is the little engine that could. I truely hope he runs as a 4 year old! 
I totally agree, and the haters hate Bob a lot!! I just shake my head when the broadcaster’s say that his horses had 5 positive drug tests in the last year. No they had 2, one a therapeutic that was given to the horse with more time than the recommended time frame. The other was an ointment that had an ingredient that is not allowed in a minuscule amount. 
The other 3 Bob was found to not be at fault. 
Baffert’s case with NYRA is early next year, he has been running horses there on occasion and no drug positives. IMHO this is good for his case.

 What bothers me is when these broadcasters say "5 positive drug tests"- many people think of doping-they  don't understand what really occurred and the finer points as you pointed out. And yes, the haters really hate Bob Baffert.  Jealousy is not a pretty thing.

Knicks Go received a Beyer Speed Figure of 112, one point shy of his career best and the third time in his last four starts he has reached 111 or higher. Life Is Good got a 109, his career best.
