I hear it very briefly on The Today Show this morning but only briefly. We don't need this now. Last year Santa Anita and now this year it's this..

Unfortunately you can’t test for it because it’s not one drug it’s a compounded drug that on its own is totally legal and does nothing to enhance the runner. But compounding it makes it a PED.

Yes I am sure the horse will be thoroughly looked over, I just think in KY at a farm is the best place to send him for a short period of time.

Maybe he does better in the track setting? I think there will be many discussions to see if they allow him to keep his wins? Going forward we’ll see if he can still run like he did or if they retire him if training is not up to Baffert’s standard. But what does that do to his stud plan’s ?

In the wake of yesterday’s indictment, my two horses under the care of Jorge will be picked up today. Amalfi Queen will be retired from racing and become a broodmare in KY and Ripper Magoo will be sent to Brad Cox

Not sure if the article was updated, but it indicates Maximum Security will be sent to Dell Ridge farm in KY for turnout after he completes quarantine.

When I saw the headlines yesterday, it made my stomach turn.  I had seen whispers in comment sections about Jason Servis juicing his horses and always hoped they weren’t true.

So very sad.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention it wasn’t in there this morning when I posted the article. I am glad MS will go for some turnout time before shipping to Baffert. 
 

It is a horrible situation for sure and all I can say is I hope there are no more trainers out there using this stuff. 
 

Racing needs one governing body and we need to go to NO Drugs period. Hopefully that will happen and soon before Racing is banned in the US.
