I've never been to any race, would love to experience going into one.
going with medina spirit again for the win.
I saw something a week or so ago saying Medina Spirit tested positive for drugs...? Anti inflammatory IIRC
Trainer Bob Baffert said Medina Spirit tested positive for the steroid betamethasone. Baffert said the test showed 21 picograms of betamethasone. While a picogram is a trillionth of a gram, the test is for picograms per milliliter, and a horse can have 50,000 milliliters of blood.
Rules in the state of Kentucky limits the use of the steroid to 14 days or more before a race. Any level of detection on race day is a violation.
"Bob Baffert, Medina Spirit’s trainer, admitted on Tuesday that he was responsible for the colt’s failed drug test, saying he had used an ointment for dermatitis that he was unaware contained the drug in question. He had previously offered various theories about how Medina Spirit tested positive for 21 picograms of betamethasone. While 21 picograms per milliliter of blood seems relatively small, said Dr. Mary Scollay, executive director and chief operating officer of the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium, a horse has about 50,000 milliliters of blood, so the result is not insignificant."
I was not aware Bob Baffert had such a long list of controversies; 5 in a year, 29 in a decade.
Someone needs to name a horse Bob Baffert's Drug Mule.
Or "Womp Womp!"
A good name for a race horse might be, "You're In Nation".

Derby winner, dies after collapsing post-workout
Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit collapsed and died after a workout Monday at Santa Anita.
The 3-year-old colt trained by Bob Baffert had just completed five furlongs in his second workout since finishing second in the Breeders' Cup Classic a month ago at Del Mar, according to Craig Robertson, Baffert's attorney. Baffert said in a statement that the horse suffered a heart attack.
Baffert needs to be stopped.
