As much as as I hate what Baffert has done to the game, Judge Almonâ€™s decision is absolutely correct as a matter of law.. The key is that Judge Almon found ( correctly in my view)NYRAs relationship with New York State is such that itâ€™s actions are deemed state actions requiring due process, i.e. a hearing. Judge also recognized that money damages would be hard to calculate and coupled with a claim of lost opportunity- there is only one Saratoga meet-there would be irreparable harm to Baffert. FWIW- for reasons not clear to me - NYRA rushed this suspension and will not appeal.
