Bettors are assuredly suing Bob Baffert for the Kentucky derby claiming he knowingly cheated and screwed over gamblers out of serious cash.
He has been hit with a class-action lawsuit by several gamblers who claim they had money on the Kentucky Derby and where the better part of gamblers feel Baffert cheated them out of their winnings by running a “drugged horse.”
Baffert is the most famous trainer in the history of the sport, trained Medina Spirit, which won the 2021 Kentucky Derby. After the race, Medina Spirit tested positive for the banned substance betamethasone, an anti-inflammatory steroid.
Baffert has denied using the substance to gain a competitive advantage instead saying he believes it got into the horse’s system through a skin medication prescribed by a veterinarian.
Bob continues to insist that the current situation was not intentional.
The Plaintiffs claim there are conspiracies between Baffert and other owners and or trainers to commit the above-described acts to engage in illegal gambling and/or horse doping through a pattern of racketeering activity.
