I donít think you get the same brilliance from her around two turns that you do one turn. Do you?

Iím sure Baffert thinks Princess Noor is great too. What else is he going to say? When has a trainer or someone who bought a horse come on your show and NOT said something glowing about their horse?
There's any number of trainers who visit ATR that provide forthcoming, nuanced insight about the level of talent/progress of their horses, including, (maybe especially), Baffert.

Gamine didn't make the races at 2.. Is that highly unusual? She was approaching a debut at DMR when she was paused 90 days. She resumed training in November and prepared for the March debut. She's appeared regularly since. Of course the one turning Acorn/Test efforts stand out. We'll see how they proceed. Her worktab & race calendar is below. Is that the training and race record of an unsound horse?
