He’s a liar. The ointment story proves it. He knew the pissing groom thing wasn’t enough so like all liars he moved on and made up more. I believe everything JB says about this episode but I also believe what’s being detected is covering up something else. Every year this guy pulls the rabbit out of a hat? No way. He’s racing’s Lance Armstrong.
He said “I never gave the horse that stuff.” There’s a period at the end of that sentence. If it’s true. If it isn’t, we’re up to pissing grooms and ointment. Others are doing a good job here on the ointment story, which is RIDICULOUS. I’m sticking with the groom.
How come no one in what Hunter Thompson called “the sporting press” in his famous Scanlan’s piece on the Derby is following up on this pissing groom? I’d like Baffert to produce him so he can verify the story. If he’s real he must have a name? Baffert made it sound like a routine thing. He’s pissing on hay after taking cough syrup. Sure! What kind? I’m a Robitussin man but I’d like to know what a top groom uses. Please give me five minutes to ask Baffert questions. He could probably sell these chumps the Brooklyn Bridge. But now that we’re into ointment the groom story probably dies. It shouldn’t.
It’s rare I can be so positive, but I know lying! Detective HP! Signing off. Be well my friends! And please let’s hope someone in charge has a lick of common sense to see BB for what he is.
