As if nobody ever noticed that Bafferts Clones all ran exactly the same with complete disregard to the horses breeding. The reason why horses from his barn could never be accurately measured for distance capability. The reason why we all had to overspend on our super bets. And the worst part, it won't make a bit of difference going forward.
Justify was a monster but he was not suited for the Derby. He was absolutely suited for the Belmont. American Pharoah was suited for the Derby, absolutely not suited for the Belmont. The only horse in history to win that race with his type of breeding.
Arrogate, Bayern, Mucho Macho Man, West Coast, Bodemeister etc - all the same...I truly believe that if the measures taken at Santa Anita had not occurred this year, Roadster would have probably hit that board with his sub-par breeding at the 10f distance. Obviously, enhancing drugs do wonders for a horse's endurance.
Its a disgrace and a slap in the face to handicappers.
I always skirted saying exactly what I thought about Baffert's hotshots, but I always knew that there was something extremely fishy about the way his horses ran vs their breeding. THEY NEVER COINCIDED AND THEY NEVER WILL because they allow it. His barn, the only barn.
We always knew there was something going down but we will never know why it is allowed to go undetected and overlooked. I can't stand that guy, his family, and his whole **** operation. It puts such a dark cloud over the innocent horse. More importantly, it affects the dollar amount that these crooks are getting in the breeders shed and that will ultimately ruin future generations of runners and any consistency with historical configurations.
This guy should be banned from horse racing. But he won't be. They will turn a blind eye over and over. So now we shall see how they handle McKinzie for the Classic. We shall see. His breeding is 101% incorrect for the Classic distance but his trainer, of course, will still be there with his kid and his snob wife in the stands as if they are royalty. The horse may or may not have tested positive for enhancing drugs. The gamblers will not be made aware obviously because Baffert is allowed to slide under his guilt. Yet again, gamblers will need to make and pay the "Baffert Compensation" - That is the disgrace.
Ever since the day that Bayern wiped Shared Belief out of the Classic and it was allowed to stand - I knew Baffert was an untouchable snake.
