Had no choice if he wants to run. Not that impressed anyway with that one. Could drop off without BBs help.

Not at all. I expect to see a lot more of that. If my horse’s trainer was prohibited from racing in certain circuits, I would probably do the same thing. I wouldn’t want my horse to be limited as to what races he could run in. Even if I supported Baffert, as a business owner, I wouldn’t want any victories achieved by my horse, to have any questions circulating around it.

There’s an unraced MTR colt that I’ve been following, awaiting his debut with Baffert. Recently I saw his works show up at Keenland rather than Los Al and SA where he had been working before. Could mean he has changed trainers as well.

Edit: Just saw that the unraced colt I mentioned, is owned by Starlight!

I'll be curious as to who is chosen.....doubt that they'll all go to Brisset.  Hoping that Walsh and Callaghan get some more well-bred horses.  It's a great opportunity for the younger trainers to step up and show what they can do with some raw young talent.

Keepmeinmind

big in name only.   I guess eventually the horse might do SOMETHING?  I mean he did win a race back in Fall of 2020.  

Diordoro was running under a suspension in the Preakness --- Let those guys transfer their horses to another trainer if they care about the owner.  Or, let the owner suffer the consequences of choosing a cheater for their trainer.  I'm out of sympathy nowadays for these practices.  

Not wagering but if I were I'd bet anything Arrieta is riding.  He's my favorite longshot jockey, and he's on a 15-1 horse (Hello Hot Rod) who will probably drift upwards at post time so I would probably stick that one in my exotics.  Jockey is 53% w/p/s career and about 48% w/p/s in 2021.  

I do like King Fury and The Reds as well. 


I suck at big stakes races so who knows if any of these will hit.

I like Arrieta as well. Very underrated jock, winning at over 21% lifetime, and almost 15% in 2021.

I'm not great at handicapping, but I do like the progression I see from Masqueparade. Stall has been patient with his development, and his Equibase numbers in his four 2021 starts are  76 - 83 - 95 - 108! If he moves forward or at least doesn't regress, he should be right there. He is tactical, so I don't think he needs any particular set up. I'm not crazy about Mena, but he's ridden the horse in every start.

If horse is at a track Baffert 'is' banned from, then more than likely the trainer name change hasn't been made into/input the data base by the programmer and the present info as Baffert remains as well as migrates into other data sources.
