Animal
    (April 5, 2018- )
    Born in Florida
    Sire: Protonico
    Dam: Mongolian Changa
    Owner: Zedan Racing Stables
    Trainer: Bob Baffert
    Jockey: John Velazquez
    Career earnings: $2,285,200 (through mid-2021)
    Winner of the 2021 Kentucky Derby
    His win was called into question after he tested positive for anti-inflammatory steroids (betamethasone) after the conclusion of the race.
    The revelation resulted in New York racing officials banning him and Bob Baffert from participating in the Belmont Stakes.
    He finished third behind long shot Rombauer and Midnight Bourbon in the Preakness Stakes after failing his drug test, raising further questions.
    He is the latest of a long line of drug test failures by trainer Bob Baffert's horses ( Justify failed a drug test shortly before winning the Kentucky Derby in 2018).
    If disqualified, he will be just the second horse in Kentucky Derby history to be dethroned because of a drug infraction (the last one, Dancer's Image in 1968).
    He drew the ire of Donald Trump.
    His win broke a tie Baffert had with Ben Jones for the most victories by a trainer in Kentucky Derby history.
    He is named after the second holiest city in Islam and the capital of the Medina Province of Saudi Arabia (the home of owner Amr Zedan).
    As if it needed to be said, but Bob Baffert's actions aren't exactly indicative of the horse's individual character.
