Bafferts Blues

Poor Bob Baffert. Paynter's second in the Belmont completed for Baffert, who placed in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness with Bodemeister, a painful feat: the Runner-Up Triple Crown. Baffert is no stranger to Triple Crown heartbreak; he has finished second seven times. The races this year don't even compare with some of the past close calls on the heartbreakmeter (five Bafferts being the most painful).
