It has obviously worked overall, but in situations like this he should take a few cues from his mentor, Lukas. To peak by the Breeders Cup, "Bobby" should really have two more starts. Pletcher won't do that, and with his track record, I doubt if he even puts another one into him before November. · 206 days ago ·
