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.

He’s giving it one last try, but I don’t think he’ll be successful in reinstating MS as Derby winner.

I’ve never heard of a trainer having a suspension removed from his record, so I have no idea how that will turn out?

 This article describes the sum and substance of the appeal- I just don't see him winning this but I don't blame him for trying. I come away from reading this feeling so sad about Medina Spirit- such a special horse---

I so agree with you about the horse.........Medina Spirit Won the race, no matter who says what

And then he dies, without the recognition of being a Derby Winner..........sweat_drops
