We did! Congrats to Medina Spirit, John Velasquez (what a weekend for him - with the Kentucky Oaks & Derby wins), Bob Baffert, etc.! Loved Bodie's reaction after the race!

From what I've heard Medina Spirit failed a post-race drug test and is in jeopardy of being DQed from the Kentucky Derby; this isn't Baffert's first (or second or third) failed drug test by his horse.

Yes, I am now aware of this news. Very disturbing if this is the case with Bob Baffert (happening more than once). I wonder how this will impact the Preakness this weekend in terms of other horses entered in the race.

I agree. Disturbing and then some...
Outcome will be interesting.. The health and well being of the horse should always be top priority but sadly not always the case..

Well technically speaking an anti-inflammatory medication, which is what the horse tested for,, helps the horse and reduces pain

Love the equine events. I’ve been watching the full event replays on NBCSN and must add, the British commentating team is terrific!
The dressage was good tho for most it is like watching paint dry…. Felt sorry for the competitors and horses in the heat but they all did well..

Was this ever resolved?
