💜 Justify Failed Drug Test:
2018 Triple Crown winner Justify failed a drug test weeks before the Kentucky Derby and should not have been allowed to run in the race, according to a report by the New York Times.
According to the New York Times, the failed drug test was reviewed by the California Horse Racing Board which took almost a month to come back with the results. The board should have filed a public complaint but instead moved to drop the case against the horse and lighten the penalty for any horse with the substance found in their system.
Only a few people were aware of the failed drug test which took place on April 7, 2018 following the Justify’s win at the Santa Anita Derby. He tested positive for a significant amount of scopolamine which veterinarians say can enhance performance.
In most cases, the failed drug test would mean disqualification and forfeiture of both the prize money. It would have also prevented Justify from participating in the Kentucky Derby. The horse needed to finish first or second in the race to qualify for the derby. Justify ended up winning the derby and eventually became the 13th Triple Crown in the past 100 years.
According to test results, emails and internal memorandums discovered by the New York Times, California regulators waited three weeks to notify Hall of Fame horse trainer Bob Baffert that the horse had failed the test. At that point, the Derby was 9 days away.
Four months later, the board dropped the inquiry altogether during a closed-door executive session. Raising questions about how they determined they should drop the case and what went into the decision making process.
