Time of anxiety for the Baffert team.

This is just like the positives for Joe Sharp and others with their use of a worming product.

So, if this is it, I guess they have to uphold the ruling? Vets should know what’s in rx they’re prescribing. Hopefully the Integrity/Safety board can address the situation.

 This would seem to make sense-- it is certainly a possibility.  I also hate like mainstream media is treating this like he "doping" his horse.

I expect if this turns out to be the cause that there will be a DQ.  I feel bad for the horse and for Castleton-Lyons who stand Prontonico.  But this would be negligence on the part of Baffert and the veterinarian.  They should have known what they were using on their Derby horse.  If only they had looked into the ingredients before applying it to Medina Spirit.

I agree. Baffert is a top-notch trainer, and I am sure owners pay top-notch prices to have their horses in his barn.  He or one of his staff should be on top of everything used to treat those horses.

Agree! But if the split sample comes back negative, it’ll be a moot point. But Baffert will have to be even more diligent in regards to what is used in/on his horses. His vet also dropped the ball on this.
