2002 Zany Tactics Stakes
Baffert was pleased with Officer's performance in the 6 1/2-furlong Zany Tactics. "He sat behind those horses, and Victor (Espinoza) had a hold of him," Baffert said. "But you can't take too much of a hold or else he'll displace on you. Victor said he was really full of himself today. But when he makes that move around the turn, he runs on a different level." Officer stopped the timer after running the distance in 1:15.71 on a fast track. Hot War finished second, three lengths ahead of Duddly Doo Run. Officer earned the $64080 winner's share of the $106800 purse and paid $2.60 for the win as the 3-10 favorite. The $1 exacta paid $5.20. The win marked Officer's sixth in nine career starts.
