To wrap up this Derby Diary.
The Goldolphin dynasty was in the TC to regain their prestige and refute a tarnished reputation caused by trainer.
Saturday they made good on the Belmont Stakes card.
As Dogs said in the pick contest here. . . .
The colt that replaced Maxfield in theory, in his unfortunte 3 yr old 2020 campaign as the next colt to regain their/Goldolphin image. My pick in 2 yo BC Juvey. My January Delta Horse to win the Derby. And now 5 wins undefeated going in.
Meanwhile the Derby disaster has Bob Baffert swinging back..
Sues NYRA ....Faults Churchill Downs handling of the positive potion presumptive protocol
In war and law fights capturing the King or General is not enough. You must kill him.
They just need to do him like Napoleon, not King Harold.

Comment" comedy !!!.especially for my friend Steve Oh..
Well. First of all the art work is not the original. It is a copy. I magnified the brush stokes and did proportional dimension calculations. Also the time period of this picture shows the use of modern titanium white in it. The paint was not available back then. When I taught at the doctorate level art at the Sorbourn, Doc Dogs, one of my students said the art depicts race horses and the cheaters and stake holders fighting one another.
I have located this copy art picture here and its location using Google ID tools.
Last night I just finished building a DIY Nuclear Magnetic Resonance analytical machine.
I will age test the art work.
Hahahaha as long as no one gets interfected.
The more he cries, the more guilty he looks
Baffert Medina Spirit Pee Sample to fly on Private Jet
Scroll down for article
Baffert is currently ruled off NYRA (Saratoga opens July 16), Kentucky, Arkansas.
The ointment by Merck is a treatment for ear infections due to bacteria or yeast. It is labeled for use in dogs, but veterinarians will frequently prescribe it for cats, horses, and other animals as well.
If the sample is shown to be from the ointment content of ingredients, and discovery of Vet prescription, legal proof of purchase; Baffert has the possibility to plead the dosage was not directly and intentionally administered. Still there is the knew or should have know complications.
Baffert ran just 8 horses at the 2020 Saratoga meet. The legal challenge of his NYRA suspension in my scope is to mitigate the negative public media coverage before due process discovery of next toxicology findings and accordingly method of drug inducement.
Why only 8 horses, easy: Last year NY had much stricter travel restrictions and to ship a horse in pretty much meant you sent the horse only and couldn't send your staff with him (so, no Jimmy, not his usual exercise riders, etc) and have to trust your horse to another trainer (and that trainer's vets, grooms, exercise riders) while there. This year Saratoga will be on full operations including full attendance so of course Bob wants to get this defeated so he can send his horses there and snap up those huge purses, much more that what's offered in CA.
But no surprise Kentucky in its usual lenient way is going to find a way to make this disappear. This is the state that enabled Alex Harthill, and it shows.
Great track backside backroom insight.
Comeuppance.... American Pharoah & Bob Baffert
In 2015 Baffert said he did not want to go to Saratoga over the insistence of the owner. And having won and heading out of the TC and Haskell; Baffert said the Saratoga oval was a trick track to add insult to injury. Perhaps he wanted an appearance fee. About $100K then.
And as known AP got beat convincingly.
That incident has probably stuck in the craw of Spa's peeps for quite some time. Comeuppance.
