Is Baby Yoda the ultimate horse for a course? He has 6 races, 2 at the SPA and 4 elsewhere. In ALL 4 elsewhere races, this horse has had issues at the start (at least one trouble designation if not more). His only meaningful forward moves have been the two races at the SPA. His worst race at the SPA is significantly better than his best race anywhere else. His only win that was not at the SPA, was against 10k maiden claimers (prices, OK, i.e. that is not a typo).

It seems to me that this horse needs to run at Saratoga or places like Saratoga (Oaklawn, Keeneland). Beauty of running this horse at Oaklawn is I think he gets lasix in the stakes races (his two Saratoga races were lasix races). In the Malibu, he does not get Lasix, and he is running against monsters with whom he cannot afford any antics at the start. My take on this horse is that he will probably disappoint on Sunday, but hopefully the connections will not lose faith and will send him to Oaklawn and his form may be concealed enough by then that a good price can be had when he is spotted correctly.
