    "The documents reviewed by The Times do not show any evidence of pressure or tampering by Justify’s owners."

    Cool. Then why write 2,000 more words?

    Seems like the board was not only dragging its feet, but dug in even more after the horse won the Derby.

    Like California horse racing isn't in enough trouble with all the horses dying at Santa Anita last meeting.

    Really wouldn't have wanted to be the person holding the cup on this one. Or the "aimer."

    Could be worse. There's an aimer when a horse stands at stud also.

    My brother-in-law played football at Kentucky. This was one of his offseason jobs.

    I love thoroughbreds but the sport is a raging dumpster fire. At some point Baffert will have to explain but of course he'll claim ignorance or technicality. What a joke.

    Great reporting by Drape.

    I worked with a guy whose family owns a thoroughbred farm in Kentucky. He told stories about growing up around that industry that made me laugh very hard indeed.

    You should see the Amish when it’s a big stud draft horse. As long as my arm and thicker. Truly kind of frightening.
