(News) Kentucky Derby Winner Fails Drug Test

Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit was allegedly juiced up when he won the race, because he apparently tested positive for steroids. In a news conference Sunday morning outside of his barn at Churchill Downs, the legendary trainer, Bob Baffert, said neither he nor anyone on his team administered the drug to Medina Spirit. This means the horse could be disqualified. Medina Spirit is the only horse in the race to test positive. This would be Baffert’s 5th medication violation since May, 2020. Churchill Downs immediately suspended Baffert. This story is still developing.
