Yes, he looks thin and he needs things to break his way. That didn't threaten to happen today with such a slow pace and a classy stablemate several lengths ahead of him with the jockey hand riding and looking around.
Still not a bad effort by Roadster. I am always a believer than everything tends to drift back to the beginning. I don't care about current form so much as what the horse demonstrated at one point. If there isn't an injury involved then Roadster is eligible to return to his Santa Anita Derby form and beyond.
I wouldn't write him off just yet. Baffert himself said the horse had lost weight and Smith said he didn't have that usual punch. It's very clear the colt is not in form right now and probably needs time off.
