“Does he accept responsibility for his actions?” Greenberg said. “No. Instead, he trashes everyone he can think of. He trashes regulators, he trashes the media, he attacks everyone and everything, and he says he has no idea how this could happen. … The damage that was done to Thoroughbred racing on those two days was incalculable.”
I believe this is the crux of the issue NYRA has with Baffert. Essentially unbridled arrogance. Don't mess with the Kentucky Oaks. Don't mess with the Kentucky Derby. Baffert's defense is that he didn't really do anything wrong. His defense continually and unsuccessfully objected to Baffert's comments during his press conferences being shown at the hearing. Embarrassing and again arrogant to say the least.
