Trainer Bob Baffert has shifted gears with his two top unbeaten 2-year-olds, Officer and Habibti, deciding to keep them in California for their final preps prior to the Oct. 27 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Belmont Park instead of sending them to New York for a pair of grade I races in early October.
Trainers Bob Baffert and Bobby Frankel keep stoking the fires with major winners Habibti and Timboroa
On Sunday at Del Mar, The Thoroughbred Corporation scored another grade I win with an impressive looking chestnut. One day after Point Given romped home in the Travers Stakes (gr. I), Habibti won the $250,000 Del Mar Debutante by two lengths.
