Horse Racing Medina Spirit Kentucky Derby 2021 win is voided

Discussion in 'Horse Racing Forum' started by Easy-Rider 66, Feb 22, 2022.

  1. On Feb. 21, 2022, some 296 days after the 2021 Kentucky Derby, Medina Spirit has been disqualified from his win by Kentucky Horse Racing Commission stewards.​

    The ruling was published roughly a week after attorneys for Medina Spirit trainer Bob Baffert said they appeared at a stewards' hearing to discuss the horse's positive test for betamethasone after that race.​

    “After a formal hearing before the board of stewards, Robert A. Baffert is hereby suspended 90 days, March 8, 2022 through June 5, 2022 (inclusive) and fined seven thousand five hundred dollars,” the ruling read. “Medina Spirit is disqualified and all purse money forfeited. Pari-mutuel wagering is not affected by this ruling.”​
