Complete text of CHRB's Baffert ruling


The California Horse Racing Board issued on Wednesday the complete text of its ruling that trainer Bob Baffert should be suspended for 60 days because of the result of a positive test for a trace level of morphine found in one of his starters at Hollywood Park in May 2000.

The CHRB on Tuesday denied a request by Baffert, and his attorney, Neil Papiano, to stay the 60-day suspension, though Papiano said he will appeal the CHRB's denial in court.
