The nasty dispute between Churchill Downs and Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert took another step on Monday.

CDI announced it is extending Baffert’s suspension through 2024, which means the trainer will not be able to enter horses in races as the organization’s tracks. That includes Kentucky Derby 150.

A trainer who is unwilling to accept responsibility for multiple drug test failures in our highest-profile races cannot be trusted to avoid future misconduct,” the statement said.

Baffert fired back on social media.

The suspension came about after a positive test on Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first in the 2021 Kentucky Derby, only to be disqualified long after the race. CDI added that Baffert had racked up over the previous two years, including a betamethasone positive in the horse Gamine in the 2020 Kentucky Oaks.
