Not sure if the article was updated, but it indicates Maximum Security will be sent to Dell Ridge farm in KY for turnout after he completes quarantine.

When I saw the headlines yesterday, it made my stomach turn.  I had seen whispers in comment sections about Jason Servis juicing his horses and always hoped they weren’t true.

So very sad.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention it wasn’t in there this morning when I posted the article. I am glad MS will go for some turnout time before shipping to Baffert. 
 

It is a horrible situation for sure and all I can say is I hope there are no more trainers out there using this stuff. 
 

Racing needs one governing body and we need to go to NO Drugs period. Hopefully that will happen and soon before Racing is banned in the US.

Interesting developments Michael Dubb said his horses would be dispersed to trainers Chad Brown, Brad Cox, Christophe Clement, Mike Maker, Todd Pletcher, and Rob Atras.

Dubb said he was in no rush to run any of the 20 horses, even after they land in new barns.

"I wouldn't want to enter the horses anytime soon," he said. "I want to regroup with these horses. I want the trainers to take their time with the horses and make sure they are comfortable with running them

Brad Cox says he will not accept any runners previously with Navarro

Based on something I read and speculation only I am suspicious of these owners.

Just coming to post this. From the article I find this portion interesting. All these people will not be able to work because I am sure that no track will allow them to participate in racing until the trial is over.
The agency raised the possibility that horses raced in violation of state rules and laws could also face disqualification from any race and loss of purses awarded.Those sanctions would impact owners

the owners could be hit hard and forced to forfeit Purse money.

Well name of the game and if you don’t really know what’s done at the barn, is partly their fault? I do feel bad for the backstretch workers though.:(
