It would be very stupid to use something on a Derby horse.  But this stuff just keeps happening with Baffert horses so frequently that I don’t know what to believe.

 When I saw that headline I just could not believe it.  I feel so badly for the horse, which up to now has been a cinderella story.  Baffert knows all eyes are on him: he could not be that stupid or arrogant to dope a horse (for lack of a better word) in the most visible race in the country. I hate to say I think maybe somebody got to his horse, or there is some other reasonable explanation: I simply do not believe it, but the attention this is going to get is just awful for Baffert and the industry. It makes me sad.

Here is the article, the Horse has never been treated with Betamethasone and 21 picograms is equivalent to 2.1 gram. 
The most common use for the drug is to treat psoriasis.

I do not think he is guilty.

 I agree- so many people are assuming he is guilty (based on what I am reading on other web sites)

I know he will fight this very hard, as he should.

I don't know what to believe either, but Baffert has been involved in this before.  I see a long legal battle.

CDI does pre race testing and the horse passed that one with flying colors!
