Baffert will have 13 ready to run in 6 races.

Chad Brown has 11 ready in 6 races.

Pletcher surprisingly has only 6 in 5 races.

Let the craziness begin...

I'll play the horse,  not the trainer!

There are certain trainers that win at a high % with certain jockeys & for certain owners. Why does someone claim a horse for 10k & win at 25k? With your logic, it's all about the horse.

Sorry Midnight, I should have explained better!   YES, all 3 of those guys are top of the sport.  But trainers?, I think not.  They are the heads of a lucrative business and have hundreds of the best horses in training at their disposal. However they cannot be in NY, FL, KY and CA on the same day!  I would venture a guess these 3 guys train NO horses and just get the cream of the crop steeds from owners who enjoy the limelight.

So YES, they win a good percentage of races because they have the most quality but also start a lot more horses as you mentioned

GB their eye for picking good assistant trainers who do all the real work so the big 3 can get their accolades for being a top trainer.


I'll still play the horse!
