In an unusual move, BB worked McKinzie, Restoring Hope, and Solomini today at Santa Anita....for 7f.  The report showed Solo a length faster than Hope, and McK another 2 lengths back.  Would've loved to have seen the progression, maybe the work is on YouTube?  In any case, I follow those horses on Equibase, and they sent the works out, but recorded the 6f. splits, and had Solo at 1.11:80....not sure how accurate the reporting was, because they also sent out Mck' work as 1.25 for 6f, and 22/22!  Can't be right.....

I'll report back when I find out more....

I agree about seeing the progression, but unless someone knows exactly why the horses were worked that way, and what problems or whatever Baffert was trying to fix/do, it's hard to say why he was staggering them that way ie. the exercise rider has a lot to do with it per the instructions they were given.
