This article has a lot of good information including the fact that Kentucky Horse racing Commission hasn’t said or done anything yet.

How many times will we hear about this during the Belmont program? Way too many imho, I really wish that the lab had taken one more week.

I hope they limit the amount of time they spend on this subject. The Preakness was way too much. I’ll probably end up muting when they discuss it. My brother refused to watch live cause he didn’t want to hear the repeating discussion.

Actually, I hope they don’t make the decision on DQ until afterwards, or other tracks decisions on banning.

Other tracks (except NYRA) are waiting to see what KRC does. This is acceptable since only the racing commissions should be doing any sanctions etc, iMHO

whouda thunk it?  and the he says Baffert was suspended for giving Medina Spirit a

Performance Enhancing drug.  ---: therin lies the problem

This makes me so mad! Mainstream media just tells us what they want not the truth.

Well, I found the name of the disc jockey who I heard discuss this case (his name is Pat St. John)  and I sent him an Email advising him that betamethasone is not a performance enhancing drug.  Guess what? he answered my email--- He said he didn't use Baffert's name and that he got this information from the Today show (spreading misinformation as well)-- I sent him an email back and thanked him for his response-- I was pleasantly surprised he responded at all.  I asked him to clear this up for his listeners (which I am sure he won't)!!!!
