The Friday Show Presented By Monmouth Park: All Those Court Documents

Paulick Report's editor-in-chief Natalie Voss has an unusual summer reading list. No Stephen King or James Patterson novels, not even the new Geraldine Brooks best-seller, “Horse,” a story about an enslaved groom in Kentucky and a horse named Lexington who became an iconic stallion to Thoroughbred breeders.

Instead Voss pores over court documents: depositions, transcripts, lawsuits and legal proceedings. They are not in short supply at this time.

In this week's Friday Show, Voss joins publisher Ray Paulick to share some of what she's learned on a couple of different cases. First is the ongoing legal battle between Medina Spirit's connections and the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission over the colt's disqualification from the 2021 Kentucky Derby for a failed drug test.

Paulick and Voss also discuss the ongoing challenges to the recently launched Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority, including the injunction ordered by a federal judge in Louisiana that for now prevents the Authority from enforcing its regulations in Louisiana and West Virginia.

While the outcome of the litigation is unknown at this time, it's a sure thing that thousands more pages will be produced to provide hours and hours of reading pleasure.
