Ah, the good fellings just keep on coming. I have never been a Baffert fan or supporter, nor have I disliked him. But I am NOW a Baffert fan. Truly a tremendous job on screwing Barry Irwin.
I laughed my ass off when I read about Baffert deciding last-minute to enter Danthebluegrassman (a horse that looks hopelessly "slow" compared to most of the other Derby hopefuls), which knocks Windward Passage from the field. I feel badly for Steve Asmussen and any minority Team Valor owners of 'Passage', but the fact that Irwin basically wasted his time, money, and concern for the past several weeks in hopes of a KY Derby win is awesome. Bravo Baffert! I hope you have a chance to do it to Barry Irwin again next year.
By the way.....does Irwin have to relinquish his seats at Churchill for Saturday in the same manner that Drysdale had to give up his courtesy car? I'm still looking for some good seats.
