They didn’t talk about it in the open. They talked about it on wiretaps, that were put in place because the Jockey Club hired detectives to come up with enough probable cause for the Feds to convince a judge.

I’m agnostic re Baffert and PEDs. Maybe he and his vet(s?) are really clever. But do you seriously think they’re not crawling up his butt?

Short story— literally the last meeting I had before lockdown was with McKinsie and Jim Gagliano in the JC offices here in Manhattan, about the tool we ended up creating for racing offices to decide whom to watch. Towards the end of the meeting Jim and I got into one of many discussions we’ve had about who is moving horses up (which discussions continue to this day). I said “what you guys need to do is get some wiretaps”.

He didn’t say a word. And about a week later it was all over the news about Navarro etc., they had already been working on it- and spending money on it— for a long time.


Actually, let me amend this, lest I come across as a naive idiot. Baffert got some extraordinary jumps with horses shipping to NY. I am beyond suspicious of those.
