PETA ON JUSTIFY RULING

Edited Press Release — The following statement was made by PETA Vice President Kathy Guillermo on a California judge’s ruling that Justify’s victory in the 2018 Santa Anita Derby bet set aside:

“Justice was slow, but the court has at last come down on the side of the horses’ and ordered Justify’s win in the 2018 Santa Anita Derby to be set aside. It can’t end here. Justify tested positive for a banned substance and must be stripped of his Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown titles. He would not have qualified for the Derby had California officials acted properly and thus would never have won the Triple Crown. Bob Baffert must not sweep doping under the rug with flimsy excuses, and the industry must take responsibility for protecting all Thoroughbreds at all times.”
