The latest victim of cancel culture is… a horse? Well, that’s what Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert is saying after his horse, Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit, tested positive for steroids in a post-race drug test.

Baffert has also been suspended indefinitely from Churchill Downs.

“It’s a complete injustice, and I’m going to fight it tooth and nail,” he said, via Horse Racing Nation.

Baffert continues to refute the positive drug test, saying the horse was never treated with the banned substance Betamethasone. During an appearance on FOX News, the cancel culture comments followed.

He also had a WILD claim about how the positive test came about.

Per Baffert, a groom urinated in the stall after taking cough medicine and Medina Spirit ate some of the hay.

Medina Spirit is still preparing to Preakness Stakes this coming weekend, but if a second test comes back negative, we could see the horse pulled from the race.

The Preakness has already postponed its scheduled draw — which is a clear indication they are waiting for more results.
