Baffert sure has had his share in that post. Dan Dan the bluegrass man scratched KD morning and did not run. That was the infamous War Emblem year. When I saw he scratched, I thought something was up and did not react. Some wondered if they did it to reduce the chance of one more runner, every little bit helps. I thought IWC was one of those who crashed those inside him, might be wrong about that.
Edit, actually, I think American Pharoah starting from the 17 post position due to a scratch. So that is another BB and a winner starting in post 17, or do we only count the number on his back.
SameSteve G said...At least there should be very little doubt who is going to be making the early pace. Hopefully, nobody gets hurt.
that nobody gets hurt is of utmost importance. Derby makes me nervous.
Baffert will set up a rabbit for WoW to mess him up I think.
