Justify failed drug test before winning Triple Crown

Justify failed drug test before winning Triple Crown

Justify's incredible Triple Crown triumph previous year may be tainted.

California regulators decided four months later behind closed doors to dispose of the inquiry altogether, citing "contaminated food" as the possible origin for Justify's positive drug test.

The newspaper reported Wednesday that Bob Baffert-trained Justify tested positive for the drug scopolamine after winning the Santa Anita Derby, one of the final prep races for the Kentucky Derby.

11 that 2018 Triple Crown victor Justify tested positive for scopolamine after his victory in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby in early April 2018.

The report notes that the presence of jimson weed that is sometimes found in horse feed can result in a positive test for scopolamine.

Drape's article said that a handful of racing officials, and people connected to the horse, knew about the failed drug test.

At Tuesday's event, Apple CEO Tim Cook didn't have much new to say about the TV+ service beyond its pricing and service date. Both the regular and "pro" iPhone 11 models will be available for pre-order Friday 13, be available for purchase Friday 20.

"There was no way that we could have come up with an investigative report prior to the Kentucky Derby", Baedeker said.

Baffert asked for the second sample to be tested in an independent lab, in accordance with the local rules, on May 1 before the result was confirmed on May 8, after the Kentucky Derby.

Four months after Justify became the 13th Triple Crown victor, the board threw out the drug test all together, citing that the test could have been the result of the horse eating jimson weed, which is known to contain high levels of scopolamine. "That's impossible. Well, that's not impossible, that would have been careless and reckless for us to tell an investigator what usually takes you two months, you have to get done in five days, eight days".

By the time all was said-and-done Justify had won the Triple Crown.

Scopolamine, also known as hyoscine, is banned in horse racing because it can improve horses' breathing and heart-rate. "You want to have an 'Aha!' moment, but this was used in his stable all the time". Will he have to give back his cut of the $60 million in breeding rights that his now-tainted Triple Crown earned?
