I think they are hoping that the Kentucky Derby Issue would be resolved by this. At the most if he is found to have Betamethasone in his system and the rule in KY is a 14 day suspension not a 2 year suspension. 
You do know that the 2 Lidocaine positives from Oaklawn were reversed and Bob was found to not be guilty because other horses that same day tested positive and the investigation found it to be contamination from a track worker not Jimmy Barnes.

Yes, I do know about the Oak Lawn reversal.  But I don’t think the Churchill suspension can be reversed by anyone but Churchill?

You are correct, however once the Kentucky Horse RAcing Association finally concludes their Derby issue with Bob and issues a ruling. I am sure he will go after CDI with a suit saying 2 years is too long when KHRA only gave him x number of days (if any)

Still no resolution

That’s because someone bungled that 2nd urine sample.

I hope the Integrity Act can put end end to these lengthy delays in processing.

Maximum Security and Dubai haven’t settled yet either.:(

OMG no wonder this testing takes so long. Waiting for information from another company before you can start. UGH

The first part said information but the following paragraph said the actual metabolite, either way, there has to be a quicker way for these 2nd samples to be tested!

think there is,. but holding out for Medina.........strange that I always think of him as a filly? At this point, no reversal , makes sense.........and I did not intentionally do this bold
