If proper rules were followed, thoroughbred and 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify wouldn’t have even been allowed to compete at all.  According to a report from the New York Times, the horse failed a drug test a month before the 2018 Kentucky Derby, which should have led to a disqualification. However, the California Horse Racing Board reportedly buried the results, taking more than a month to confirm the test before dismissing it four months later. The board chairman owns an interest in horses trained by Justify’s trainer Bob Baffert. SI Now’s Robin Lundberg and Amy Campbell discuss what the report does to the 2018 Triple Crown’s legacy.
