A three-member hearing panel has made the decision to suspend Hall of Fame horse trainer Bob Baffert for one year, effective immediately, the New York Racing Association announced Thursday.

The 69-year-old Baffert was suspended after Medina Spirit's victory at the 2021 Kentucky Derby was disqualified.

CNN's Steve Almasy contributed to reporting.
