Officer, winning the Champagne Stakes.
Bob Baffert has indicated that Thoroughbred Corp.'s outstanding 3-year-old Officer will be entered in the $325,000-added Coolmore Lexington Stakes to be run Saturday April 20.

"We are definitely coming," Baffert said from Clocker's Corner Santa Anita. "He will fly to Louisville on Tuesday. We will keep him at Churchill and ship to Keeneland for the race."

The handsome son of Bertrando was a facile six-length winner of the Zany Tactics Stakes at Santa Anita in his 2002 debut after an excellent 2-year-old season last year.

"I'm sending "Little Hands" to ride him," Baffert said. "Victor 'Manitas' Espinoza."
