I know BB has been training him but I thought he may go in the San Felipe. Does anyone know what BB's plan is with this guy?

Thank you Nancy. I didn't see Mastery on the nominations for the San Felipe.

Not sure about the campaign on this one..baffert seems to be pretty patient with this one. Lots of hype but haven't really heard anything its based upon. Seems kinda sneaky with this one

It seems that Baffert is firmly in the camp that a 2 prep campaign is preferable whenever possible. He's correct to feel that way. This one has really done nothing wrong but has yet to run a "fast" race... We'll see

Gormley, best 3yo out of Cali this year

Best match up this far on the derby trail

Mastery is a good one, just not as good as some of his strongest supporters believe

I agree he's done nothing wrong but I don't think he's done enough to have all of the gushing over him. Nobody has exactly blown my socks off this year and other then being "the baffert horse" for awhile I'm not sure what's all there. This Saturday will be the pass or fail.

Looks like Mastery could be washing out. Don't know if that will affect the way he runs.

Doesn't look super serious but doesn't bode well for his future on the derby trail

Smith said Mastery felt off in left hind shortly after race, but walked fine a minute later. Colt was vanned off as precaution.

That was impressive. Shame he is hurt. I thought Gormely had more fight in him after the battle with American Anthem. That last race might have torched him. Thought Illiad ran fine with a 3wide pressing trip.

You're welcome!

Here are the latest updates:

Assistant Jimmy Barnes tells Bob via phone horse walked off van on own.

Baffert calls Mastery, "best colt in nation," when discussing possible injury. "He'll undergo a lot of tests."

You're welcome again!

Now another update says it is the left foreleg that is the problem. :/

Agree re Iliad. That was his first time around two turns, wasn't it?

Well, not good news:

"Mastery has a condylar fracture in left front, surgery Monday, per Baffert."
