ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND EDITIONS, MAY 30-31 - FILE- In this May 13, 2015, file photo, Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert walks American Pharoah around the stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Wearing a cowboy hat and boots, Baffert had already conquered the quarter horse world and was ready to take aim at the bigger money and prestige offered by training thoroughbreds. It wasn’t long before he piled up 11 wins in Triple Crown races and ditched his big hat but kept the boots. (AP Photo/Garry Jones, File)

FILE - In this April 28, 2015 file photo, trainer Bob Baffert watches horses workout at Churchill Downs, in Louisville, Ky. Before Baffert won the Kentucky Derby for the first time, he lost. Seize the moment is Baffert's mantra. Don't think about those glorious wins by Silver Charm in '97, Real Quiet in '98 and War Emblem in '02. And for sure, don't even mention the losses. Three of them with favorites, one by a nose, and another with the horse he calls the best he's ever trained. Of course, that tune could change by Saturday night. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel, File)
