Jay Privman, Oaklawn Park , 2019-03-16 - DRF Live Posted : Mar 16, 2019, 7:42 PM

Trainer Bob Baffert hoped for two wins rather than two seconds in divisions of the Rebel on Saturday at Oaklawn, but said he was happy with the way his colts Game Winner and Improbable performed and was "thankful" he had a place to go with them after the San Felipe was cancelled last week at Santa Anita.

"I'm just thankful I got to run them," he said in a phone interview Saturday. "They ran their races. They just got beat. Both ran big races off a layoff."

Baffert said both would return to Santa Anita to train. Game Winner will stay home for the Santa Anita Derby on April 6, and Improbable will go back to Oaklawn for the Arkansas Derby on April 13, he said.

He's not scared to come up the rail either. I like that.

Default Sunland Daydream.

Looks like plenty of speed signed on in this one. The break will be important. The 2 faves have looked good. I’m hoping Joe Rockhead is correct on Mucho Gusto being distance limited. Anothertwistafate might put them all to sleep, but could also get the dream trip and take them when he’s ready on the turn. He is so visually impressive I will let him be the focus and get a couple to close in behind to fill out the minors.

I guess it's hard for other outlets to acknowledge the origin of information. First reported by DRF team on site and written up by Steve Anderson: https://www.drf.com/news/derby-prosp...dylar-fracture

Makes sense. Thanks Steve. I thought they might try the Lexington even though it’s fewer points since that field should be smaller and less talented than the Arkansas Derby but obviously they know better than I do.
