"Sadly mistaken"? Lol ok.

You want to compare a trainer with 8 starts in 2020 with Baffert.

Mary E. Eppler Racing Stable, Inc.

Starts Firsts Seconds Thirds Earnings
8 0 2 2 $20,380

If you had said Asmussen, Brown, or any other similar trainer...I would have disagreed, but you wouldn't have been ridiculous. Just wrong.

You may not like him, but Baffert is also star power and so is that colt.

Too big to fail?? He wouldn't have "failed" if he didn't run this weekend.

Racing would have failed not having the #1 3YO run in the highest profile 3YO race to date, without the #1 trainer of TC horses.

The Rolling Stones want to perform at a music festival. Its all booked up. I'm sure the promoters would tell them, "sorry fellas, we have no room for you".

My guess is that the promoters find room for them.

Thats how it works.
