Improbable takes Whitney at Saratoga

Bob Baffert had himself a full day in mere minutes Saturday.

The Hall of Fame trainer won a pair of major stakes races on both sides of the country in a span of 11 minutes. He warmed up out at his summer track at Del Mar in California when Thousand Words upset  highly regarded 3-year-old Honor A.P. in the $100,000 Shared Belief in a race that went off at 5:36 (EDT).

Eleven minutes later he got the big one when Improbable won the $750,000 Whitney, the marquee race of the Saratoga season for older horses. Improbable, the 3-1 third choice, gave Baffert his second Whitney win in as many years. Last August, he won it with McKinzie.
