LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer Bob Baffert has been suspended for 15 days by Oaklawn Park stewards after two of his horses tested positive in Arkansas for a banned substance. The stewards said in a ruling that the suspension runs from Aug. 1 to Aug. 15. They said Baffert violated a rule that states that a trainer shall ultimately be responsible for the condition of any horse that is entered regardless of the acts of any third parties.
