Racing officials blinked. Backstory: I will start with a disclaimer, I only casually follow horse racing but this story caught my eye. So this horse wins the Kentucky derby while being a long shot 12 -1 odds. The horse trainer is the dude with the white hair that you have seen numerous times on tv celebrate his horses victory. Turns out he has been caught cheating in the past. So after the major upset win by his horse, his horse tested positive for a banned substance. first red flag, he makes the media announcement and not the race track officials. Second red flag, he flies to meet with race track officials and brings his attorney along. so now, this Baffert guy says, “ oh yeah, I forgot that we rubbed an ointment containing steroids on him for a skin condition I wonder if that’s what did it”
he might as well have said, “ the horse is troubled and has struggled with steroid abuse for years. He is a black horse and has always hung around with other black and brown horses In marginalized neighborhoods. Once in a while you would see him jogging with white friends. you can’t imagine the number of times we went out looking for him in the middle of the night. We usually found him in an alley, passed out with street whores(ses) laying next to him. just a jackass! Bad influences. We tried an intervention but he just swung his dick at us and knocked over the table and the urn with grandmas ashes before trotting off to shoot up drugs. We sent him to whores rehab but it didn’t do any good. He kept using and continued to bang whores(ses). those drug houses are breeding grounds.
Not our fault, the system let another young black horse down. “
Today race track officials announce his horse will be allowed to race this coming Saturday in the Preakness race, “but we are gonna really, really, really test him again“. This Baffert guy must have some jewce!
