Hehe - BA would prolly have run RA in the Oaks and The Derby.
Wait, meebe that wouldn't have been such a bad idea.......
Gentlemen, there's no fighting here. This is the WAR ROOM!
President Merkin Muffley
In 2010 he's going back to his roots and enter her in the Hambletonian.
No word yet who the driver will be.
And remember...Things work out best when you make the best of the way things work out.
what a great story!! i hope he does it and wins. and then runs the horse sunday at turf paradise
in an allowance race. a guy down south named henry withey use to run horses two days in a row all the time and did good. he ran a horse in houston on saturday (ran 3rd) in a stakes race, then ran 2nd the next day in dallas in an allowance race.
I've now read 2 different stories that said he WILL run Lethal Heat in both races.
That is even a more intriguing story than Lava Man returning. (Which I like too)
I just wonder why if people make generalizations about other people, that is not PC> Need to look at folks as individuals right?
But when it comes to horses.....most seem to know better from their keyboard what is the advisable course?
I think we can safely say that BA probably knows his horse better than we do.
You can take the man away from the racetrack, but you can not take the racetrack out of the man.
Well, Baffert would/will work his horses in 1:10 6f and race a day or two later. Not too much difference- but some.
the strategy has worked on this circuit before--and there is old school saavy behind the ploy--last one i saw do it was H A Jerkens...
OT, but where is your Churchill/Preakness road sign icon from, Kermit?

i got a big kick out of the novice press a couple of years ago during big browns triple crown run. randy moss mentioned several times how of all trainers richard dutrow liked to give his horses a lot of time between races. coincidently the day he said that dutrow had a horse running who had won 3 days earlier.
That sign really caught my eye because I grew up on Belmont Terrace that turned into Churchill Downs. Preakness Lane was very nearby along with Paddock Drive, Santa Anita Court and Furlong Drive. I guess I was destined to follow horse racing based on the streets surrounding me as a youth.
