Well after Pletcher had a Positive the year before with Forte, that was buried for about 6 months, maybe Baffert thought "if TAP can get away with it, why not me". Until he thought twice. Actually here is what he said and to your point AFTER he shipped all the way out there to Saratoga

“I was coming back a little quick and I looked at that [Hopeful] field and it’s salty,” Baffert said. “I want to run him two turns, I’m going to wait and give him a little more time.”

And thanks for reminding me of that Scratch. We had the Charlatin and Gamine positives on the same day at Oaklawn. In major Stakes races. And the Justify positive in the SA Derby that the CHRB buried for months. If not an entire year. He never would have been qualified for the Derby. Was he a fast horse? Absolutley. But thats not the point

If the Track is super sloppy the whole day is a downer. There will be some opportunities to make some money there and other Tracks. And Baffert still has another decent horse in the race. [u][b]And a chance to extract "revenge" or make a "statement" to Churchill.[/b][/u] But after they ordered Forte scratched two days before last years Derby and Fierceness finished 10 miles up the Track this year. Churchill could be sitting back and sayin "See".......
