ZRS v. Churchill Downs

Zedan Racing Stables Inc. is seeking a temporary injunction in Kentucky circuit court that would end the illegal ban initiated by Churchill Downs Inc. that blocks any horse trained by the legendary Bob Baffert from running in the Kentucky Derby. The lawsuit was filed after Zedan Racing Stables’ horse Muth, who is trained by Baffert and one of the fastest three-year-olds in the country, won the Arkansas Derby, normally an automatic qualifier for the Kentucky Derby.  The complaint asserts that the indefinite extension of the ban by Churchill Downs on Baffert-trained horses “has no basis in law or in fact, and it cannot withstand scrutiny.”
