A Kentucky stewards' ruling nearly a year and a half in the making could have a profound impact on the career of highly respected trainer Rusty Arnold. Horses in Arnold's care in 2016 tested positive for ractopamine, a feed additive listed as a Class 2 drug by the Association of Racing Commissioners International.
But given Arnold's almost pristine training record over several decades, what questions should be asked concerning this situation? In this edition of The Friday Show, Scott Jagow and Ray Paulick discuss what happened, how officials have responded and what this might mean in the bigger picture.
Plus, you know Kentucky Derby fever is close at hand when the Derby Dollars Contest gets underway!
Watch this week's Friday Show below and share your thoughts.
