Trainers McCarthy, Yakteen Take Over Baffert Horses

Trainer Bob Baffert

Trainer Sean McCarthy will take charge of embattled Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert's stable while trainer Tim Yakteen is to oversee a select group of his 3-year-old runners pointing to the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Kentucky Oaks (G1), Daily Racing Form reports.

Yakteen's group includes Robert B. Lewis Stakes (G3) winner Messier, who pointed to the Santa Anita Derby (G1) next Saturday.

Baffert begins a 90-day suspension Monday for a medication violation found in 2021 Kentucky Derby first-place finisher Medina Spirit.
