Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit fails post-race drug test, trainer confirms

The trainer for Medina Spirit, the winner of the 2021 Kentucky Derby, confirmed on Sunday that the horse had tested positive in a post-race drug test, a result that prompted Churchill Downs to suspend Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert immediately.

According to Baffert, he was informed by an assistant trainer that a test on Medina Spirit found 21 picograms of the drug betamethasone, a legal therapeutic drug. The amount found was double the legal threshold allowed in Kentucky racing. As well, state horse racing rules require at least a 14-day withdrawal time from the medication and any level of detection on race day is a violation.

Baffert was adamant the horse was never treated with the medication and promised to be fully transparent with the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission during its investigation. Medina Spirit’s win in the Derby stands for now.
