HRT Highlights #42

Baffert trainee Faustin wins his debut

Faustin came into his maiden race so highly regarded that he was 40/1 in the Jazzsports Kentucky Derby future book and the son of Curlin cruised to a nearly three-length victory under Ramon Vasquez for trainer Bob Baffert.  The race was so impressive that Faustin is now the third favorite at 20/1.

Taiba conquers the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes

Bob Baffert’s barn started the Santa Anita Park meet in amazing fashion with three stakes wins highlighted by Taiba, who cruised to an easy victory under Mike Smith in the Malibu and captured his third G1 race of the year and will challenge Epicenter for a three-year-old colt of the year.

Country Grammar Wins San Antonio With Authority

Earlier in the card, Dubai winner Country Grammar started his 2023 campaign off with a five-length win in the G2 San Antonio Stakes with Frankie Dettori piloting the five-year-old.  Baffert will need to decide if he will stay in California or head to Florida for the Pegasus.

Fun To Dream dazzles in La Brea

In the G1 La Brea stakes for three-year-old fillies, Baffert sent out the top four favorites and it was the California-bred Fun to Dream who came out on top with Juan Hernandez in the irons.
