Baffert Looks for More From Congaree

Congaree won his last two races by a combined margin of 11 ½ lengths, but trainer Bob Baffert doesn't think they were the horse's best efforts. That should raise concern for Congaree's five rivals in Sunday's $250,000 San Antonio Handicap (gr. II) at Santa Anita for older horses at 1 1/8 miles.

Congaree Out for the Year With Knee Injury

Congaree, who finished third as the odds-on favorite behind Scorpion and Free of Love in Saturday's Jim Dandy Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga, came out of the race with an injury to his right front knee and will be out at least 90 days, trainer Bob Baffert said on Sunday. "It's the same knee he had surgery on last September," Baffert said, "but it shouldn't require surgery this time. He just needs some time off."
