    Re: Horse Racing Random Random

    At least it was Charlatan and not Nadal. Can you imagine if Nadal (the horse) had tested positive? The jokes would have been endless. And merciless.

    That said, they run the test twice for a good reason.

    But the news that came out about Justify last year or so doesn't particularly help Baffert's case here. Nor does the fact that Baffert inherited Maximum Security after Jason Servis got busted.

    Ouch. Speaking of Nadal, TVG just broke the news. Nadal (the horse, winner of the Arkansas Derby, Division 2) suffered a career-ending BUT NOT LIFE-THREATENING injury. He will not race again. They will do surgery on a front leg. After his recovery, he will go to stud.

    Bob Baffert is having a bad week.

    Interesting time for Nadal to get injured.

    His last race was the same day and same track as Charlatan. Nadal's test was clean--at least based on some reports I ready early on.

    And to be clear, if I understood it correctly, Charlatan didn't test positive for a PED. He tested positive for levels of a legal medication that exceeded the limits. Of course, that doesn't mean it was accidental.

    A few things to note.

    1) Still no word on Charlatan's second test.

    2) Laurel Park in Maryland reopened last weekend--no spectators.

    3) Belmont Park in New York reopens about 20 minutes from now--no spectators.

    4) On a very sad note, the great Arrogate passed away yesterday or the day before at the age of only 7. For about a week, he had suffered from an undetermined neurological disorder. They could not figure it out. Ultimately, the owners at Juddmonte Farm decided to humanely end his suffering. His third and final crop of foals will begin arriving in early 2021. Arrogate is probably best known for winning the 2017 Dubai World Cup after hopping out of the gate and then getting mugged by horses around him. He was also a Baffert horse.
