Baffert, How Many Have To Die?

Whoever wrote that must have been been living under a rock for the last decade. But I don't blame them. They have been pre-conditioned to believe biased sports pundits and wanna-be handicappers who are oblivious to the tell-tale obvious signs that has been going on for years.

 

We already know what that California "report" will say. We don't need to wait. It will say that Medina Spirit died from a heart attack. Case Closed. Move On. Nothing to see here. And when the ass-kissing sports pundits witness yet another 2 year old BAFFERT CLONE running wire to wire in his maiden, they will praise that man as being the best trainer they have ever seen. There is a CAUSE and EFFECT. They will tell us the effect - the heart attack. They will not tell us the cause.

 

Bob Baffert is single-handedly destroying what is left of the USA Horse Racing Sport. From the Breeding Sheds, to the Pedigree Charts, to race results, all the way through to the thoroughbreds themselves. The only reason this is allowed to continue is because GREEDY OWNERS continue to hand over their horses to him in hopes of the big payday. They are apparently completely clueless of what they actually purchased as far as inheritance is concerned and they care not about the numerous past investigations into Cluster Deaths and Illegal drugs. They could care less that every single solitary Baffert Money-Maker runs EXACTLY THE FREAKING SAME regardless of pedigree. Oblivious to their charts time and time again - year after year - the same exact horse.

 

Back on July 7th, 2020, I penned an article entitled Mr. Baffert, Answers Please - Between the posting of that article until today, how many Baffert clones won races wire to wire or stalking the lead? How many have been prematurely retired? How many injured? How many investigations? Do these people actually think that any horse racing handicapper would take their words seriously in any report that lays out why a perfectly healthy 3 year old horse drops dead after a 5f workout? They'll get away with it - again. Since that article was posted, Medina Spirit, Hopportunity and Mernieth have tested positive for illegal drugs under the supervision of the Bob Baffert Syndicate. Bob Baffert still races his horses. It is a travesty.

 

No answers about the death reports on Arrogate. No answers about Nadal's state when he was injured. No answers on why the Tank, Justify, had to be retired after only 6 races in his entire career. No answers on why American Pharoah could only give us 3 more races after winning a Triple Crown. No answers on why Authentic had only 2 races in him after winning the Derby.

 

It is not a coincidence that Justify, Gamine, Charlatan, Hoppertunity, Mernieth and Medina Spirit all tested positive for drugs and it is quite easy to assume that many others went undetected. Baffert is lucky that whatever gives his speedsters and milers additional endurance is not yet on the testing roster. I will go even further to say that in hindsight, it is actually lucky for Nadal, Justify, Pharoah and Authentic that they were released from him so early while it is unfortunate that we cannot say the same for Arrogate and Medina Spirit.

 

No answers on:

How did American Pharoah travel wire to wire 12f with his breeding?

How did Justify win the Belmont wire to wire?

How did Collected travel wire to wire in the 10f Pacific Classic with his breeding?

How did he turn the $1000 colt, Medina Spirit, into the winner of the Kentucky Derby traveling wire to wire?

How did Authentic win the Derby wire to wire against Tiz the Law?

How did Bayern beat Shared Belief, Chrome and Toast of NY traveling wire to wire in the Classic and get away with it?

How did Secret Circle become a 6f sprinter with a classic pedigree?

 

But the biggest unanswered questions of them all:

How do these race results occur with colts whose breeding run the gamut in balance?

How do all of these colts and fillies disregard their breeding and travel wire to wire or stalking the lead OVER AND OVER again? How do these horses disregard their charts and run EXACTLY THE SAME, with the SAME EXACT RUNNING STYLE regardless of distance or sire or balance? Do you think that anybody out there with a microphone might inquire of the great Bob Baffert how these race results occur day after day, week after week, year after year?

 

Below is a complete list of Bob Baffert's Maiden Winners from the entire year of 2021 to present. Out of this list of 35 winners, only 2 horses ran and won coming from 4th position and only one came from the back of the pack. Just one. This means that 32 out of 35 wins came from a lead runner. Thirty-two speed-drenched maiden filly and colt winners out of 35 either stalking in 2nd or 3rd position or went wire to wire for the win. Do you think anyone out there might question how it would be possible that only one two-year old stabled in Baffert's barn was bred to be a rear runner and won his maiden? Do you think that anyone would even mention the fact that each of these horses have completely different breeding and the probability of this happening BASED ON THEIR CHARTS has to be a million to one.

 

Just like every other year, these front running maiden speedsters are prime candidates for Baffert to become Classic Champions based on the uncanny and magical ability of finding additional hidden stamina and endurance that is not found in most of their charts. A bulk of these speed demon lead horses will somehow disregard their speed/stamina balance, they have somehow adopted a running style that is counter to their breeding and they will eventually disregard every generation within their charts as the distances become further. They will eventually become "super horses" - speedsters out on the lead sustaining uncanny hidden stamina that eventually becomes unbeatable. This will inevitably skew the valuable records of the breed and render the well-kept charts obsolete. Evidence for this is clearly displayed in the race results of Baffert's Graded Stakes Races (listed below as well) coupled with the charts.

To the OWNERS that still have their colts or fillies installed in Baffert's Barn,

To those who are in charge of figuring out what to test for,

To the California Horse Racing Board,

To those in Bob Baffert's employ,

To those in Washington,

To those who tell us to Wait for Reports (the clueless pundits),

To Bob Baffert,

 

To the Owners: You're damn right I took the time to research all of these races. I did it because I can talk until I'm blue in the face about how absurd Baffert's Clone Business has become over the years and maybe if you see it in black and white, something will click in your Teflon skulls. Medina Spirit is dead today because the obvious was pushed to the side to favor this trainer while the horse should have been torn out of that barn the day after the Derby by his greedy owners. What does it take for you all to look at these fillies and colt's pedigree charts and to see that the bulk of them either do not have the breeding to travel these distances or they were not bred to be lead runners. Most all of them are speedsters/milers with "future" hidden stamina that somehow magically appears in these graded stakes races? Are you that greedy that you would allow this man to turn your horse into another clone for money? If you haven't noticed yet, whatever it is that is turning these thoroughbreds charts upside-down, it certainly does not agree with them for very long. The impending result: Extreme Early Retirement or Death. Take your pick. Is it worth it?

 

To the CHRB: How can anyone on the California Horse Racing Board not see the absolute absurdity of all these horses gaining that winners circle taking the exact same route with their style regardless of distance and completely oblivious to their pedigree charts? Do you think that handicappers don't consult these charts? CHRB, when you come out with your report that states that Medina Spirit died today from a heart attack, you had better tell the public WHAT ACTUALLY LED TO THE CHAMPION 3 YEAR OLD to have a heart attack in the first place. If you do not, you are just as guilty in destroying this sport and destroying these horses as that lying snake, Mr. Bob Baffert is. Turn your head once again and 2022 will be filled with blame against you when more of Baffert's speed demon clones mysteriously perish.

 

To those who do the testing: Most of these speedsters, both the maidens and the Graded stakes winners are gaining additional endurance that is not found in their charts. YOU ARE NOT ADMINISTERING THE PROPER TESTS. Whatever it is that is turning these charts upside down and allowing for each and every one of these horses to be a clone of the one before is not coming up within the tests you are providing. Here's a clue, you are missing it. The impossibility of these wins occurring in the same manner and at distances that are impossible based on their breeding is about as obvious as you can get it. Based on the charts and the Average Winning Distances of the offspring of the sires and mares and their stated speed/stamina balance, these speedsters are gaining hidden stamina over and over again. Start looking for it before Baffert shuts down this industry in this country for good or more innocent colts will be injured or they will perish. Horse Racing has no place for altered horses.

 

To Washington: Get off your asses and make it a federal crime when any thoroughbred walks onto the track with even a pin prick of any drug in his bloodstream. President Trump tried to do it for us, keep it going now.

 

To those who work in Bob Baffert's barn: COME CLEAN and Do the Right Thing. Do IT FOR THE HORSES.

 

To those who tell us to wait for reports - AKA The Sports Pundits: You simply cannot get any more clueless about horseracing if you tried.

 

To Bob Baffert: Retire in shame and take your fucking Jimson Weed, your Salon Pas Patches, your ointment, and your excuses and shove them up your ass.
