With regard to the Baffert trainees murder mystery I believe the deceased were principally young horses, not even in competition yet. Probably a good example of "whatever does not kill you makes you stronger" applies to horses too.
Next, racing on a swampy track: A. Low humidity SoCal dries out quickly. B. Generally front runners have the advantage of no kick back in the wet and imo it's significant. C. Bob Baffert trains horses to out run their competition consequently they generally run from the front. Pass me if you can.
Bob Baffert's slump. Well slumps usually end. Sometimes in a breakout weekend. Yet a slump for Baffert sure is curious. By all reports he's more loaded with talent this year than ever before. Maybe the individuals aren't getting enough attention.
It's like trying to pick out the date of a jump up performnce. We can discern the jumpup is coming but not necessarily when (today's race?). Investing in a slumping trainer at underlaid prices just doesn't make sense.
Previous facts and the belief that BB wins virtually all the time is a powerful persuasion. Consider you don't have to play all the races, some folks just look to discover a few legit overlays. Keep it simple, it is dry, calm and sunny in Oldsmar (Tampa Downs).
