Bob Baffert barred from participating in 2022 Preakness Stakes by Maryland commission

April 12, 2022

Hall of Fame horse trainer Bob Baffert won’t have a horse in the race at this year’s Preakness Stakes. The Maryland Racing Commission on Monday suspended Baffert — a move that makes him ineligible from running horses at the 147th Preakness Stakes in Baltimore on May 21. Maryland’s commission joins those from New York, California and Kentucky to suspend the trainer for his drug violations with Medina Spirit at last year’s Kentucky Derby.
