Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit on Tuesday was allowed to enter the upcoming Preakness Stakes race, with conditions, despite having tested positive for a restricted drug after the horse’s Derby victory.
The conditions including “a binding commitment” from Medina Spirit’s trainer Bob Baffert for “full transparency of medical and testing results that will allow for all results to be released to the public,” the Preakness Stakes said in a statement.
The 146th running of the Preakness, which is the second leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown, is set for Saturday.
