    Trainer Bob Baffert made his first appearance at the track on Wednesday morning, and the affable conditioner was pleased with what he’s seen so far.

    “They shipped well,” Baffert said. “They’ve done well. No negatives at all they look healthy and happy. McKinzie looked pretty sharp. We stood him the gate. The track is pretty nice. They’re both getting over it pretty well.”

    McKinzie was a runner-up last out in the Breeders' Cup Classic, while Mucho Gusto enters off a victory in the Jan. 25 Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1).

    “He worked great before he left," Baffert said. "We just let him open up through the lane (on Tuesday). Mucho Gusto did the same thing. Just to get their blood flowing.“Mucho Gusto has really changed a lot. These last three months I’ve seen a big change in him. He’s filled out. He’s just changed for the better. You could tell from that last work right before the (Pegasus) a light went on in him. The way he ran. He’s always shown up. He’s always run hard. He’ll be right there.
    “Until you put them in the gate you never really know. You’re watching and all of a sudden, they turn it on. They’ve adjusted a little bit. You have to come with really good horses. If you get away well and have some luck you still have to show up.”
