The New York Times said in November 2020 that Baffert-trained horses have failed at least 29 drug tests in his four-decade career.

Sounds like an unfortunate series of complete coincidences.

Chuck Norris once challenged Lance Armstrong in a "Who has more testicles?" contest. Chuck Norris won by 5.

He doesn't have a ball in this game.

I used to work at a race track and there were a few failed drug tests. The most common one was Methocarbamol. There are a lot of good people in the sport, but a few bad apples as well.

Silly question. What does this do to bets. I assume nothing?

*does some googling*

Huh. The fair thing to do would be to delay horse betting payouts for a week, until the drug test results are in.

We should have seen this coming.  Bob did compare himself to Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Fark you Bob, for your doped-up horse ruining my win and exacta tickets last week.

fark those animal abusers and those addicts who fund them.

So, real question because I honestly don't know: why do they not do drug testing before the race?
 
2021-05-09 4:05:23 PM  
Time to ban horse racing.

Maybe it takes time for an administered drug to show up?

It's probably a blood test and I doubt even human sports will do pre-event blood tests.

How do people who bet on the former second-place-now-first-place horse feel?
 
2021-05-09 4:33:29 PM  
This guy that I work with was talking how big of a Lance Armstrong fan his dad is. So for Christmas one year he went and took a prune, had it in cased in a clear plastic cube and had it put on a plaque that said Lance Armstrong's nut.

Look on the bright side.  At least you're not a horse.

They only test the top five, then a few randos from the rest of the field.

ESPN was mentioning 5 or 6 of Baffert's horses tested positive just over the past year. It's quite a problem, and these are through multiple racing authorities.

Once is an accident, twice is coincidence, three times is a pattern, six times means he should be banned from training horses.

That's not a silly question, b/c that's the whole farking point of the damn race. Bunch of mob doctors will have to go around unbreaking thumbs for a week.

Last time it happened, they apparently paid off the bets on the doped horse as the winner, but declared another horse the official winner for all other purposes.  1968 was the last time it happened, so who knows, but that's the precedent.

So now even our Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, is a junky. This is emblematic of what is happening to our Country. The whole world is laughing at us as we go to hell on our Borders, our fake Presidential Election, and everywhere else!

Fortunately the horse doesn't know or give a sh*t about any of this nonsense.

Medina Spirit is Baffert's fifth horse to fail a drug test in a year.
Really sad when four legged athletes get hooked on drugs.

Here's the answer:

Bob Heleringer, author of "Equine Regulatory Law," told The Courier Journal when the owners of Maximum Security were attempting to overturn that horse's disqualification as the 2019 Kentucky Derby winner that once a race is official, the betting results are final, regardless of mistakes by the track or an appeal.

I can't wait for his next press release statement claiming he actually won the Kentucky Derby too.

Not a damn thing. I was reading about this earlier today and they had some fancy betting words that basically translated to "race is over, the winner at the time is the ticket that gets paid, feel free to wipe your ass with all other remaining tickets"
