Interesting wide-ranging interview. A lot of Baffert in the discussion -- from horse deaths; Justify not being disqualified; and opinions about Baffert's "quarter horse" style of training.
So, Sha'Carri Richardson won't be allowed to compete in the Tokyo Olympics due to a 30-day suspension for a positive for marijuana (that is legal in Oregon where the race/test took place). She had no excuses -- just an explanation that she was depressed due to her mother's death and took a puff. She accepts the punishment. A positive -- even a very outdated positive -- is a positive. Her honesty is noteworthy.
Baffert can take a few lessons from this young lady.
