Maybe not. I just saw Cupid schooling in the Del Mar paddock (looking sensational!) and heard the tail end of a conversation about him by the TVG folks. Sounded like he was running in an upcoming Del Mar stakes on Wednesday. :?
Checked the entries for Wednesday and, sure enough, he's entered in the 1-mile, $75,000 Harry F. Brubaker Stakes.
Would Baffert run the Tapit colt here...and then in the Woodward on such a short turn-around? Could some other horse from his barn be headed back to the Spa? It's not like he doesn't have another older male to choose from. :P

I seriously doubt he'd go to the Woodward if he goes Wednesday. My guess is that Cupid will run at DMR and Baffert can then either go the Awesome Again/BCDM route with him or the JCGC/BCC route with him. If he doesn't look to be up to the BC this year, hold Cupid out until the Clark. I'm just guessing but I wouldn't be shocked to see Danzing Candy in the Pat O'Brien with Baffert trying to decide between either the BC Sprint or Dirt Mile. If he saw enough in that race down the hill, earlier this year, it might be fun to see Danzing Candy in the Turf Sprint.

Yeah...but how much fun will it be for DC, watching Lady's Aurelia's pretty hindquarters powering away from him? :lol:

It's a long time between now and the BC. A couple of months ago Arrogate was inked as the Pacific Classic winner. Sometimes you have to put your horse where they fit and not worry about who they're going to go against.

Update on Mor Spirit... Bob Baffert says the horse wasn't doing well at Del Mar, so he stopped his training and is giving him some time off.

I feel like Bob Baffert would love to see this Del Mar meet over and in his rear view mirror. :( And that he would give one of his heart valves to have the Breeders' Cup running anywhere else. :shock:

At least Cupid churned out a thoroughly workmanlike win.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.
