Dermatitis Ointment Caused Positive Drug Test, Baffert Says

Cancel culture was not responsible for the Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit’s positive drug test. No, his trainer, Bob Baffert, said Tuesday, the colt was being treated for dermatitis with an ointment that contained the drug in question. “I had him checked out by my veterinarian who recommended the use of an antifungal ointment called Otomax,” Baffert said in a statement. At a veterinarian’s recommendation, the ointment was applied daily to Medina Spirit’s hind end to heal the dermatitis, the statement said. “Yesterday, I was informed that one of the substances in Otomax is betamethasone,” Baffert said in the statement.

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert called himself a victim of "cancel culture" on Monday and pushed back on allegations of wrongdoing after his Kentucky Derby-winning horse Medina Spirit failed a drug test. The trainer on Monday lashed out at Churchill Downs for announcing his suspension before a more lengthy investigation could be done. "I think it was just a knee-jerk, cancel culture kind of reaction," Baffert told Peacock Network's "The Dan Patrick Show." The drug is legal and can be acceptable in a horse's system at various levels, depending on the state. A horse with weakened bones or joints, but galloping pain-free thanks to medication, runs the risk of a deadly breakdown.

Now the question is whether Medina Spirit will be allowed to run in Saturday’s Preakness Stakes after a failed drug test put its Kentucky Derby win in peril. Medina Spirit held off Mandaloun by a half-length to win the 147th running of the Kentucky Derby on May 1. But on Sunday, trainer Bob Baffert revealed that Medina Spirit had failed a post-race drug test, which could ultimately lead to the horse’s disqualification. Baffert’s attorney Craig Robertson said they would seek a temporary injunction if the Preakness doesn’t allow Medina Spirit in the race. Medina Spirit was the seventh Kentucky Derby winner trained by Bob Baffert.

Progressives are staging a power-play to make the one-year expansion permanent, but some moderate Senate Democrats have raised concerns. If Republicans recapture a majority in either chamber of Congress, they could block Biden's agenda. Indeed, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell last week told reporters in his home state of Kentucky that is his goal. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said he knows Republicans might decide to again sit on the sidelines and watch Democrats struggle to pass Biden's agenda on their own. For it to work, every one of the 50 Senate seats controlled by Democrats must vote together.

The Trump national security official Kash Patel would have been the new FBI deputy director. Attorney General Merrick Garland is very different from Barr: Barr was known as "the Buffalo" for his hard-charging ways.

Emergency legislation issued Sunday aims to aid fuel delivery following the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack. The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) has issued emergency legislation to help restore fuel supply after a ransomware attack Friday forced the country's largest fuel pipeline offline. FMCSA said the temporary exemption would help provide "necessary relief" after the "unanticipated shutdown" of the Colonial pipeline system. Colonial Pipeline, the largest US refined fuel pipeline operator, said Saturday it had been "the victim of a cybersecurity attack" that took some systems offline and forced it to temporarily halt operations along its 5,500 miles of pipeline "to contain the threat." He said that the temporary USDOT measures mean oil products can be shipped to New York in tankers, but in far smaller quantities than would ordinarily flow along the pipeline.

"Further, Facebook has historically failed to protect the welfare of children on its platforms." A Facebook spokesman did not have an immediate comment. Last month, the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood also called on Zuckerberg not create a version of photo-sharing app Instagram for young children saying it would put them at "great risk."

McConnell backtracked from his prior red line on the cost of an infrastructure package, bumping it to $800 billion. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is upping the cost of an infrastructure package that the GOP is willing to consider to $800 billion, backing away from a recent red line he put at $600 billion. "The proper price tag for what most of us think of as infrastructure is about six to 800 billion dollars," McConnell said in an interview with Kentucky Educational Television that aired Sunday evening. McConnell did not budge on his resistance to amend the Republican tax law, and said user-fees like increasing the gas tax could be used to finance new federal infrastructure spending. But a group of Senate Republicans spearheaded by Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia pitched a $568 billion infrastructure plan last month to kickstart negotiations with the White House.

One of those lawmakers, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, led a $568 billion GOP infrastructure proposal last month. McConnell outlined his desired spending cap ahead of Biden's first meeting with the top four congressional leaders on Wednesday. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said an infrastructure plan should cost no more than $800 billion, setting down a marker ahead of a critical week for efforts to craft a bill that would refresh U.S. transportation, broadband and water systems. Biden's plan includes $400 billion to bolster care for elderly and disabled Americans, along with investments in housing and electric vehicles. Democrats want to raise the corporate tax rate to at least 25% from 21%, the level set under the 2017 GOP tax plan.

So now that the Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit has failed a drug test, I can cash my bet on the second-place finisher, Mandaloun. And my buddy who bet Medina Spirit will have to return his winnings, right? Betting rules at horse racing tracks, off-site wagering venues and internet sites are very clear in cases like this. Winners can collect their cash, and losers can tear up their tickets. Derby bettors have long since folded up their cash, or maybe spent it on a round of drinks.

In the last week, Trump tried to reframe language around "the big lie" — which has been used to describe his claims about a stolen election — and made reference to "vote dumps." This past week alone, Trump released about a half-dozen statements questioning the legitimacy of last fall's election. And the message from people who want to get rid of Liz Cheney is to say 'it's just time to focus on the future and move on.' Cheney could be voted out of her leadership position — one tasked with leading House GOP messaging — as early as Wednesday. If you look at polls, there's a whole group of folks that agrees with Liz Cheney.
