Baffert has been a bit critical with some of his comments about rides the past few weeks.

I am not big on rider switches to big name riders. I still remember Bailey trying to get on both Azeri and Vindication. One worked, one didnt. I feel like there can be some karma with that stuff as well.

Riding for Baffert is tough work, you are expected to work 5-8 horses for him yet he can get upset enough to boot you right quick.
