Good one. I missed it badly. I thought it might be Baffert even though it didn't really look like him.

The Los Angeles Times link through me off. I was trying to name someone with a Southern California background. I don't associate the correct answer with California.
The photo would have thrown me off also, but I've heard Kurt Hoover mention this connection with Pletcher a couple of times on TVG.

Stewards at Parx Racing in Pennsylvania have suspended trainer Jonathan Wong 60 days as a result of a barn search by Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission employees that led to the finding of two hypodermic needles and syringes and two bottles of an injectable substance. The search, according to a ruling dated May 20, occurred on March 4.

Wong appealed the ruling, but his request for a stay of the suspension was denied by the racing commission. His suspension is scheduled to run from May 30 through July 28.

Jockey Robby Albarado, who has been sidelined with a fractured leg since April 23 at Keeneland, is named to ride horses June 8 at Churchill Downs.

"I've been putting myself through a bunch of training on our farm," Albarado said. "I've been doing a lot of physical therapy as well and my leg feels great."

Albarado, 43, galloped two horses for trainer Dale Romans the morning of June 2. It was Albarado's first time on horseback at Churchill Downs since he fractured his leg nearly six weeks ago.

Romans is scheduled to run Gotham Stakes (G3) winner J Boys Echo in the June 10 Belmont Stakes (G1). He and owners Albaugh Family Stable have yet to name a jockey for the son of Mineshaft and reitereated that Albarado remains an option.

In case Godolphin hasn't had enough trainer drama this year, Saeed Bin Suroor has revealed that he has been knocking heads with Godolphin Chief Executive John Ferguson and Charlie Appleby has been getting the creme de la creme of Godolphin horses. An excerpt:

He then bemoaned his latest two-year-old intake, extremely backward relative to the collection entrusted to Appleby, stating: "It is a disaster. I can't train them, have no chance to run them. The system is not quite great this year."



He usually is a pretty quiet guy, I guess that is how you work as the head trainer for Godolphin for 25 years. I wonder what his goal is with this interview and am interested to see what happens

Of the thirteen Dubawi two-year-olds Ferguson bought at auction as weanlings or yearlings, Bin Suroor got *one* of them. On the other hand, Appleby got ten. Bin Suroor's group of two-year-olds are a joke at best.

If Bin Suroor's revealing interview was a sign of a power struggle at Godolphin, it would appear that he has won the war.

In a news release posted June 6 on Godolphin.com, it was announced John Ferguson has stepped down from his position as chief executive and racing manager at Godolphin.
Joe Osborne, the current managing director of Godolphin in Ireland, will take up the position of interim chief executive of Godolphin's global operation.
