Medina Spirit, winner of the 2021 Kentucky Derby, failed a post-race drug test, trainer Bob Baffert said Sunday. The failed test could invalidate the May 1 victory for Medina Spirit, who gave Baffert his seventh Kentucky Derby victory. Baffert held a press conference on Sunday, saying the horse had 21 picograms of a steroid, betamethasone, in its system, which is more than double the legal allotment for horse racing in Kentucky.
Shortly after the news broke, Baffert was suspended from entering horses by Churchill Downs, the famous track that hosts the Kentucky Derby. The race track also said that Medina Spirit’s victory will be invalidated “if the findings are upheld.” In that case, second-place finisher Mandaloun would be declared the 2021 Kentrucky Derby winner.
One of the best indicators of an elite golfer — a truly elite golfer — is their ability to turn a year around in a single week. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson did it last year when he shot three straight rounds of 78 or worse and then won three events to close out the year, including the Masters (in November). Rory McIlroy did it this week after missing three of his last five cuts at stroke-play events by winning the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday at Quail Hollow for his 19th victory on the PGA Tour.
McIlroy took a Quail Hollow event for the third time in his career, and this year’s victory came on the back of a near-flawless weekend. Frankly, it was difficult to see coming no matter which way you looked.
McIlroy looked lost at both the Players Championship in March and the Masters in April, failing to make the weekend at both events for just the second time in his career He did not look all that great on Thursday this week, either, as he shot 1 over and finished 120th in the field from tee to green.
Then Rory made just three mistakes the rest of the way, finishing 66-68-68 to get to 10 under and beat Abraham Ancer by a single stroke.
