    Derby Winner to run in Preakness

    Despite the terms of the agreement permitting Medina Spirit to race, the latest doping controversy involving Baffert remained a messy one for the sport. Baffert, 68, owns a record seven Kentucky Derby titles, following Medina Spiritís upset win as a 12-1 long shot, but his horses have failed drug tests several dozen times over his 40-year career.

    From The Age:Derby trainer cops Churchill ban

    Medina Spirit’s positive drug test after the Kentucky Derby has been confirmed, setting the stage for the colt trained by Bob Baffert to be the second horse in the 147-year history of the race to be disqualified as its winner because of a failed drug test. Citing the positive test, Churchill Downs yesterday immediately suspended Baffert, a seven-time winner of the Derby and the most recognisable figure in the sport in the US, from entering horses at the racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky, for two years. That means that no horse trained by Baffert or his stable can race in the Derby in 2022 and 2023.

    The article also said "a possible disqualification is months away and is destined to be tied up in the courts for years."
