Betamethasone and Medina Spirit

Bob Baffert and Medina Spirit

This year, the Kentucky Derby resumed its normal running date and allowed spectators to participate. Racing fans flocked to Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY, sporting their fancy hats, dresses, suits, and matching ties. Twenty horses broke from the gate with their eyes on the $3 million dollar prize. Yet, only one can be the Kentucky Derby winner. Bob Baffert’s Medina Spirit, a horse purchased for $1,000, claimed the win in the 147th Kentucky Derby.
