Mike Smith vs a trio of Baffert horses...

Omaha Beach = Baffert-killer
Beat Game Winner by a nose.
Beat Improbable by a length.
Likely steals Roadsters' jockey.

The reason I ask, besides the obvious 2/2 lifetime, is that Mandella thought he had a turf horse on his hands in the beginning, did he not handle dry dirt in early works prompting that turf decision for his firs...
