 don't know if you can read this article- it is behind a paywall- about Baffert's return to racing on 7/3/22 and questioning if he can clean up his act--- I really respect Baffert- but he must keep better control of his barn- I think he will.  The author of the article makes it clear Baffert is not accused of doping horses like Servis or Navarro ( so many people call him a doper and it makes me nuts),  but he has lots of overages over the past years---

The drama continues. I always wondered about the pre race sample and if the betsmethasone was on it.

It may sound strange, but I really feel badly for this poor star- crossed horse.

He won the Derby against all odds and he won other races proving

He was a  really good horse, and then he drops dead during a workout,

And the horrible medication saga continues, dragging his name thru the mud

And  then he Was stripped of his Derby win

it is truly horrible

I feel bad for the horse too. RIP Medina Spirit, none of this is your fault.
