Super Ninety Nine Working Well for Southwest

Super Ninety Nine, trained by Bob Baffert, exercises in preparation for the upcoming Breeders Cup at Santa Anita Park on October 30, 2012.
Since 2010, Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has won six of Oaklawn’s last nine graded stakes for 3-year-olds, including a sweep of last year’s Southwest (G3), Rebel (G2) and Arkansas Derby (G1). He will attempt to keep his streak going Feb. 18 when Tamma Corporation’s Super Ninety Nine represents the trainer in this year’s $300,000 Southwest Stakes, the special Presidents’ Day feature.

Super Ninety Nine, a Pulpit colt, completed his final preparations for the 1 1/16-mile race by breezing a half mile in 47 3/5 Tuesday at his Santa Anita base. He is scheduled to arrive in Hot Springs by plane Thursday.

“He worked well,” said Baffert. “It’s the time of year when we start separating them to gauge how the California ones stack up and how they’re shipping.”

Nominations for the Southwest and early bird nominations to the March 16 $600,000 Rebel Stakes and the April 13 $1 million Arkansas Derby were released Wednesday with a total of 123 horses made eligible for the rich series. In addition to $1.9 million in purses, the three races offer a total of 272 points based on Churchill Downs’ new requirement for making the Kentucky Derby field.
