"Weeks before the colt Justify won the 2018 Triple Crown, he failed a drug test that should have disqualified him. Instead, regulators buried it."

Bob Baffert is such a cheating creep in a sport lousy with cheating creeps. The enable him to do it over and over, it’s ridiculous.

My father used to have a very senior position at NYRA for many, many years. He knows Baffert personally - along with all of the major names. Hates the guy and thinks he's cheating scum, lol. Confirmed! My father was one of the greatest advocates for stricter testing and Baffert hated him for it. LUL.

I’m shocked! The next thing you’ll say is that the winner of the Tour de France tested positive.

Haha... he essentially ran the place. Even I had full access and got to go on the roof with the SWAT snipers during the Belmont Stakes. Cool experience.

Did the California commission conclude at the time that it was likely food contamination?

Yes, and changed the rules due to how common it is.  Times ran the story quoting a vet who is dissenting from the rest of the vets as well, and conveniently didn’t run the quotes from the rest.
