Baffert's Stakes Boys Doing Well

Game On Dude wasn’t able to hold off Dullahan in the final yards of the TVG Pacific Classic to make it a perfect day for him, but trainer Bob Baffert had that runner-up result and a 1-2 finish by Capital Account and Coil to take from Sunday’s three stakes events.

“They’re all OK,” Baffert said Wednesday morning. “I don’t know what I’m going to do with them (next) yet.”

With the combined $200,000 from the $250,000 Pat O’Brien purse, and $200,000 for Game On Dude’s second in the TVG Pacific Classic, it was still a $400,000 day at Del Mar for Baffert’s ownership clients.

Capital Account provided Baffert with his sixth stakes win of the meet and sixth in the Pat O’Brien, including the last four in a row. It was Baffert’s 99th stakes victory at Del Mar.

Concerning the much-discussed loss of the left rein late in the stretch by jockey Chantal Sutherland on Game On Dude, Baffert said: “I don’t think it made any difference.”
