Federal court rules against famed horse trainer Bob Baffert in his lawsuit against Churchill Downs

(CNN) — A federal court in Kentucky has rejected the final remaining claim in a lawsuit brought by Hall of Fame horse trainer Bob Baffert against the company that runs the Kentucky Derby, according to court filings.

Baffert sued Churchill Downs Inc. in 2022 after it suspended him for two years following the 2021 Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit’s failed drug test.
