The wording of CDI's statement does not leave a loophole.  The only reason I can think of why owners are keeping Derby prospects with Beta is because he's advising them to.  Maybe he thinks his attorneys will help him wriggle out and get to play in the prep season and in KD '22.

Advising them to find another trainer is tacit admission that the suspension is valid.

So, Steve, how did Montebello race at SAR a couple of weeks ago, a trainee of Beta Bob?

Prince, nowhere does it say Baffert cannot train and race horses.  The CDI ruling is for points races and the KD itself.

Baffert is allowed to race now at NYRA pending the new action that NYRA initiated recently - see post 1 in this thread. 

Are you toying with me man?  Was that a "gotcha" ?   Haha

It looks like SF Racing conglomerate own a few, including Pinehurst, Rockefeller, and Montebello......and Baomi own Kamui and Enbarr...with Speedway owning Corniche.  These are all fine colts, a complete mystery how they continue to keep them in BB's stable

No, not at all.....I thought he was suspended from racing in New York.

He was and then he was reinstated by judge and now NYRA is trying again.  It can get blurry, I agree.

sunglasses Do you think  Jimmy Barnes will take a cut in pay and go out on his own and be a 

trainer of record for some of these. I read somewhere the deadline for some 

of the good hands working for these penalized trainers to go on their own is

9/28/21, anytime after that date they are part of the Penalized trainers team.

Have you heard this ?

I have no idea what Jimmy Barnes will do.   

I did not hear anything about deadlines either.  However, the first points race in the US is the Iroquois at Church on 9/18.   Baffert cannot run because he's suspended in KY.  Then, on 10/1 there is a points race, the American Pharoah, at SA.  So, no one associated with Baffert can earn points.

Some media outlet will clarify this stuff sooner or later.  I hope.
