Bob Baffert doesn’t always draw the rail. It just seems like it.
While no records are immediately available, the Hall of Fame trainer seems to live on the rail in post position draws. Such is the case in Saturday's Preakness Stakes, where the two horses he trains, Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah and third-place finisher Dortmund will break from one and two respectively in a field of eight going a mile and three-sixteenths.
