The white haired dude seems to adjust well. His greatest gift as a horseman. And thank you.
http://www.drf.com/news/beyer-baffer...r-buck-history . . . makes the case otherwise.
It talks about how Baffert trains his horses harder than many others. For instance, in the article BB says Bodemeister had a foundation of 26 workouts before he ever started.

Go ahead TOSS HIM - DO NOT BET BODE - and thanks!

Bodemeister aka "I have NEVER won a race without the lead" is going to get fried and hand on for a piece on class, but a couple good ones will run right by him.
You know this? Have facts to back you up? I do.
Oh, learn the difference between a work and a gallop. LOL
This trainer walks his horses two days after a work, and he also puts a "stiff effort" in them the day before the race. This horse will get a stiff effort friday morning.
Asked if Bode, 7, was fired up to see his namesake run, Baffert said, “Fired up is an understatement.”
“It’s a dream come true,” he said, “if we get lucky.”
Zayat in PR interview about changing Bode's name to that after he was already renamed Bradelberry after Brad Weisbord (Baffert hated the name and asked that it be changed, but not to name him after his son.)
"Brad is a good guy and I wanted to honor him. After he left there were no hard feelings at all. When Brad called Bob about it, Bob told him the horse got very fast after they changed the name!"
When I was touting this horse back in Feb, and breathing thin air over it, I wondered why Bob didn't tout him more, and I'm convinced it wasn't just the immature colt not showing him all his talent, but not wanting to get his son's hopes up or jinx him.

I think it's pretty definite he will be retired after his three-year-old season because Better Than Honor will be bred to him once he's done racing and now that interest in him has been sold. =(. Shame. I wish horses would race more these days.
