Has there ever been a reason given by Pletcher for Castellano being put up on Coal Front rather than Johnny V who's got 4 graded stakes wins with him?

John Panagot, Javier's agent, has worked with Bob LaPenta in the past. I'm not sure if he still does but it may be related to that.

Should Winstar switch Improbable to a different barn? Baffert is great but obviously something isnít clicking there. Maybe Improbable just isnít as good as we thought he could be...but maybe he needs a different perspective. Just some thoughts.

Who in the world is gonna get more out of that turd? Looks/trains like Tarzan, and runs like Jayne. Baffert convinced me to bet him after he wouldnít shut up about how the horse was training. The horse embarrassed himself yet again.

Not sure but his approach doesnít seem to be working. Maybe no one can get better out of him...or maybe he needs to take a drop in class. Seems like some sort of change is worth trying.
