Bob Baffert Banned From Churchill Downs—They Finally Have His Number
Yesterday, Churchill Downs banned Bob Baffert after the 2nd positive drug test for Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit. The trouble started with a positive test for a banned steroid. He can’t race in the Kentucky Derby for two years.
Bob Baffert has had five horses fail drug tests in 2021. He has had multiple suspensions and fines in his career with his horses. With the Belmont Stakes this Saturday, he is banned from that race too.
Bob Baffert was regarded as the Vince Lombardi of horse race trainers, but not anymore! It is similar to Lance Armstrong’s situation with the Tour De France. Baffert has won seven Kentucky Derbys, and coincidently, Armstrong won seven Tour De Frances. Both men are now disgraced because they were caught cheating in their sports. The only difference is Baffert used horses for his accomplishments.
Look, I still know these guys are top flight in their respective sport. But they cheated! They were flat out caught, paid fines and had suspensions.
So Bob Baffert can’t lie anymore about how these horses had drugs in their system and won races. He can’t talk his way out of this one. He has to cop to it and be accountable. They finally have Bob Baffert’s number!
