The California Horse Racing Board, meeting in executive session March 24, dismissed an almost five-year-old morphine case against trainer Bob Baffert.
In a decision filed June 6, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed a federal court ruling and ordered reinstatement of the California Horse Racing Board's complaint against trainer Bob Baffert for a morphine positive in one of his horses.
On Monday, Nov. 19, a federal judge in Los Angeles dismissed the California Horse Racing Board's case against trainer Bob Baffert over a morphine positive found in a post-race urine sample of a Baffert-trained horse last year.
Bob Baffert's attorney said Wednesday he will go to Los Angeles Superior Court either Friday or Monday seeking a stay of the 60-day suspension handed down to the trainer by the California Horse Racing Board.
The California Horse Racing Board on Wednesday issued a complaint against three-time Eclipse Award-winning trainer Bob Baffert after an independent laboratory confirmed that a split sample taken from one of his horses tested positive for morphine, an illegal Class I drug first detected by the board's official laboratory, Truesdail.
