Triple Crown News Minute Presented By Kentucky Equine Research: Betting Against Baffert?

The rescheduled Triple Crown season of 2020 draws to a close with Saturday’s Grade 1 Preakness Stakes from Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course, and while it has been a year like no other, there is one factor that has brought some normalcy to the event: the presence of Hall of Famer and seven-time Preakness winner Bob Baffert.

Baffert is five-for-five in the Preakness with winners of the G1 Kentucky Derby and he brings morning-line favorite Authentic to Old Hilltop off his upset of Tiz the Law in the Sept. 5 Run for the Roses. For good measure, Baffert also will tighten the girth (or at least attempt to) on Thousand Words, the colt who was scratched from the Derby after flipping in the saddling paddock at Churchill Downs.

In this final edition of the 2020 Triple Crown News Minute, Ray Paulick and news editor Chelsea Hackbarth assess the current crop of 3-year-olds relative to the older horse division that they will soon be taking on at the Breeders’ Cup world championships Nov. 7 at Keeneland. And, of course, they also make their selections for the Preakness Stakes and explain why they are going against the grain and not picking one of the Baffert runners.

Watch the Triple Crown News Minute below.
