Looking at Baffert's records with 3YOs over the past 15 years, he actually had much more success training post-June heroes (Hoppetunity... Yes the 3YO Hop, Game on Dude, Bayern, Arrogate and West Coast are some of them) than KD winners. So it isn't surprising that Arrogate and WC ran well post June of their 3YO campaigns, and it looked like he has perfected his approach over the past 2 years.
Saturday will be a big test for Oscar, first time going 12, against a pretty classy older field.

BREAKING: Trainer Doug O'Neill announces that Irap had a successful 3-hour surgery Monday and is back in his stall. O'Neill was told by Dr. Dean Richardson that Irap woke up in recovery pool after 3-hour Mon. surgery and walked comfortably back to stall.
I obviously need to update my equibase free stable, but since I haven't yet done so, I received a notice that Margano worked out at Saratoga on the 23rd of September. I called equibase because I think this is a case of mistaken identity, but you never know. He hasn't raced in two years and hasn't won in three years.
Sporting Chance has knee chip removed; to miss remainder of year per DRF.
Surprised he didn't log a work today.. 7 days since his easy breeze last week. Figured they'd be on a regular schedule at this point. Would like to see another breeze in the next few days here
Actually, not a bad field. I'll go with Midnight Storm, who lost the Big Cap by 3/4 length to Shaman Ghost at the top of his game.
