From what I am reading, because they do not test for it in pre race testing. 

From the article

Earlier in the testimony, Brewster read a long portion of Kentucky's out-of-competition rules that note that betamethasone is allowed in a horse's system. That resulted in the aforementioned exchange of Borden repeatedly noting that those are the standards for out-of-competition testing, which focus on finding substances that are not ever allowed in the horse. Betamethasone is a recognized therapeutic and would be allowed in an out-of-competition test, as those are not conducted on race day.

It’s not done yet. There are plenty of holes in her testimony

 This is long but I think Baffert’s attorney made good points here.

OMG!! What a debacle, hopefully the new judge can just read the transcript. However part of the process is watching body language on a witness. That isn’t in written words. I know Amr and Bob want this to finally come to a conclusion.

This will speed things up, unfortunately I do not think this case will be completed for another year or so.
