“I understand,” Baffert said. “It just shows the respect they have for American Pharoah. It’s something you can’t control. You have to earn it, just like he earned it in the weather yesterday. I’ve seen a lot of great horses leave here and (lose) in the Belmont — Smarty Jones, Big Brown, Real Quiet, Silver Charm, Funny Cide. I’ll Have Another (in 2012). You just don’t know.”
