Then at that point the Stewards will faced with a tough call.
Baffert can take the High Road and declare he would NEVER ignore the health and well being of one of his animals. He has now checked that box with the Animal Lovers.
He can then declare that his horse was a $1,000 Rag's to Riches Story that isnt what the Bluebloods prefer. Like Maximum Security. And he has now checked that box.
He can declare the Derby isnt Fixed because I've won at least 6 of them. But when the Winner is being declared by Stewards in a box and not the horse who crossed the finish line first....you have to wonder. And he has now checked that box.
Accept the DQ and win the Preakness and Belmont and leave everything with an Asterik. His reputation is in tact. Racing can always say they were the Ethical Good Cop and see how that goes over....
