I agree wholeheartedly this is a Puzzle. A couple of thoughts.
1.we should get an idea how much effect the Ky testing has on the pletcher/allday parade via the Keeneland meet and opening week of churchill downs.
2. I have no doubt DOJ will bounce but as you point out she is still a winner with a 6 point bounce. ( I had a similar personal experience had a filly I bred run a negative 4/12 she was given time, still bounced six points but was able to win running a 2) I suspect in most instances the bounce isn't an X but you would be in a better position to give a definitive answer.
3. DOJ's inconsistency is hard to figure. I wonder if she wasn't ready for her first out this year as some of the other pletcher horses in years past or is she just real quirky about the surface she runs on. No doubt it was one impressive performance
