'GaHealthy Primetime' host Brian Kilmeade reacts to the Kentucky Derby doping scandal
"GaHealthy Primetime" host Brian Kilmeade sounded off after famend horse coach Bob Baffert pushed again on claims his Kentucky Derby-winning horse Medina Spirit was drugged earlier than the race, as a preliminary post-race check mirrored.
KILMEADE: "Right here we go once more -- one other main doping scandal gripping the nation this time within the king of sports activities. Medina Spirit — the winner of final week’s Kentucky Derby [is] beneath investigation after failing a post-race drug check. If a second check comes again optimistic, the horse might be stripped of probably the most prestigious title in all of racing.
On the middle of the controversy is coach Bob Baffert — who was banned from Churchill Downs — the house of the Derby — on Sunday. Baffert’s horses have been dinged for optimistic assessments 5 occasions within the final yr.
He says all of these assessments had been finally resolved, however some imagine his credibility is unsure. The banned substance that got here up within the check is an injectible anti-inflammatory drug. However Bob Baffert says he would by no means give that drug to a horse.
One other attainable purpose for the optimistic check? Cancel tradition.
Cancel tradition? Bob Baffert, you're no Dr. Seuss.
