Baffert Starts Apriority, Drill in Palos Verdes

Bob Baffert doesn’t draw the rail in every race. It just seems that way.

That said, the Hall of Fame trainer, who turned 60 on Sunday, has the one and two post positions with his two entrants in Saturday’s Grade II Palos Verdes Stakes, Apriority and $3,000 supplemental nominee Drill.

“We got him about three months ago,” Baffert said of Apriority, a 6-year-old Grand Slam horse who hasn’t raced since last July at Calder but has three seconds in three starts at Santa Anita, including a second to 2011 Sprint champion Amazombie in the Sunshine Millions Sprint in January 2011.

“He’s doing well, but he didn’t draw very well,” Baffert said of Apriority, who has two recent bullet works on Betfair Hollywood Park’s Cushion Track. “I put Drill in there at the last minute and he drew horrible.”

The field for the Palos Verdes, race five of nine: Apriority, Julien Leparoux, 8-1; Drill, Martin Garcia, 4-1; Canonize, Jose Valdivia Jr., 5-1; Sahara Sky, Joe Talamo, 12-1; Comma to the Top, Edwin Maldonado, 3-1; Private Zone, Martin Pedroza, 5-2; and Justin Phillip, Rafael Bejarano, 7-2.
