Regarding Corniche and quoting from the Bloodhorse article on the Amsterdam:
"The same, though, could not be said for Speedway Stables’ 2021 undefeated 2-year-old champion Corniche , whose 3-year-old debut and first start for trainer Todd Pletcher produced a dismal last-place finish as the 8-5 favorite in the field of nine, about 33 lengths behind Gunite.
“He didn’t get away cleanly and found himself in a position he’s never been in before,” Pletcher said about the usually speedy son of Quality Road who was 3-for-3 capped by a Nov. 5 TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Presented by Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (G1) victory for trainer Bob Baffert. “(Jockey Luis Saez) said when he came to the three-eighths pole, he kind of came off the bridle. We’ll scope him and see if anything is revealed, but it’s disappointing.”"
