Bob Baffert has won a record five of the 43 runnings of the Norfolk
Stakes, which will be contested for the first time as the FrontRunner
Stakes this year at Santa Anita, on Saturday, Sept. 29.
The 59-year-old Hall of Fame trainer could add to that mark in the
“Win for You’re In” race for 2-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles. He has 10
horses nominated to the race, and said Thursday he could enter as many
as four: Carving, owned by his wife, Jill; Code West, owned by Gary and
Mary West; Den’s Legacy of the Westrock Stables, LLC; and Title
Contender, also owned by the Wests.
Baffert’s previous Norfolk winners were Souvenir Copy (1997), Flame
Thrower (2000), Kafwain (2002), Roman Ruler (2004) and Lookin At Lucky
