Very sad for Median Spirit.  Wonder when we will know if Mandaloun officially won the Derby.

Apparently there’s no rule on when a split sample should be sent for testing.....

After Dr. Bruce Howard confirmed Medina Spirit’s split sample had not been shipped Tuesday morning, the KHRC moved into blackout mode. A spokesman said no further updates would be provided until the testing was complete.

Which makes the fact that he cannot enter CDI or NYRA races even Moreau fair.

 I feel so bad for the horse-- he ran so hard and did so well- it is just a terrible shame, but it is no 

surprise.

There will be a full hearing, this is not over. Yes the horse had Betamethasone in his system, unfortunately but this was not administered as a performance enhancer. 
He ran the race of his life and may lose the title of Derby winner.

I do believe we will see this gutsy horse winning Grade 1’s yet this year and beating the same horses.

I love the heart of this horse! But Baffert’s mismanagement of his care should be acknowledged and punished some way, he has gotten away with this before. I always feel bad for the horse, he didn’t do this to himself.

Exactly, just like Maximum Security who always did his very best.
