NYRA and CDI vs. Beta Bob   HRN Horse-Races.Net General Discussions

If scenario is Baffert goes to Kentucky court after Commission ruling against him; citing no due process because the Commision in part spoiled the evidence. Yes that's a big number of future lost income and reputation. Maybe as much as 30 years

Saved this one: Churchill uses the Derby points as leverage to deal with the above scenario if Bob gets off due to lack of evidence corrupted in concert by the KY Commission itself.

Churchill has to pay fans $124 mil to fans for slot machines SNAFU.

Then we won't miss him will we?  Like you say, he only ships in to pull down fat purses.  I think the sport would be far better off with Baffert out of it, but that's just me.  

Edited to add:  I agree with your central point about NYRA requiring improved product.  Wholeheartedy.

Or, they could put Baffert's lawyers in charge of the rules.  {smirk}

Rule 1. - Even when he's guilty, Beta Bob is innocent.

Rule 2. - See rule 1.

I rest my case, your honor.

Well said. Deck is pretty well stacked.

Soap operas like this don't do US racing any good, just like having a horse test positive for a banned substance in the Kentucky Derby doesn't do racing any good, either.


From: TexSquared


So next time a Baffert horse wins a stakes race, how many split samples do they need?  I'd say at least 4.

Samples 1 and 2 so that if #1 is positive the state's lab can test #2 to make sure it's the same.  If both are positive:

Sample 3 goes to Baffert's lawyers so they can come up with their own rigged test.

Sample 4 goes to the IOC or FEI or some other international organization, independent of the racing industry (preferably not in North America), so they can test it.

Oh yes, the above isn't just urine.  Also take blood, saliva, and hair samples (4 each).
