Just days after it was revealed that Bob Baffert’s latest winner Medina Spirit failed a post-race drug test, the legendary trainer pointed to a "possible source" for the drug which Baffert has vehemently denied using to treat his horse.

In a statement released by his attorney on Tuesday, Baffert explaining that the 21 picograms of betamethasone in Medina Spirit’s post-Derby sample may have come from a fungal ointment that was being used to treat dermatitis. .

"Following the Santa Anita Derby, MEDINA SPIRIT developed dermatitis on his hind end," the statement read.

"My barn followed this recommendation and MEDINA SPIRIT was treated with Otomax once a day up until the day before the Kentucky Derby.  Yesterday, I was informed that one of the substances in Otomax is betamethasone.".

"MEDINA SPIRIT earned his Kentucky Derby win and my pharmacologists have told me that 21 picograms of betamethasone would have had no effect on the outcome of the race.  MEDINA SPIRIT is a deserved champion and I will continue to fight for him.".

When word broke about Medina Spirit’s positive test, Churchill Downs released a scathing statement Sunday saying that Baffert won’t be able to enter horses at the track, and failure to comply with the rules and regulations puts the safety of the horses and jockeys at risk and can ruin the integrity of the sport.

"Given the seriousness of the alleged offense, Churchill Downs will immediately suspend Bob Baffert, the trainer of Medina Spirit, from entering any horses at Churchill Downs Racetrack.

To be clear, if the findings are upheld, Medina Spirit’s results in the Kentucky Derby will be invalidated and Mandaloun will be declared the winner.".

That horse has never been treated with (betamethasone).
