Despite the absence of Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, this year’s Derby will take place despite the fact that Churchill Downs disqualified him for two years following Medina Spirit’s failed postrace drug test and subsequent disqualification as the winner of the previous year’s Derby.
As evidenced by the high levels of attendance and participation in the Louisville area and at other major sporting events such as the Super Bowl, the Final Four, and Major League Baseball games, the atmosphere for the first jewel in horse racing’s Triple Crown should have a pre-pandemic feel, though masks are not required.
The 2020 race was postponed until Labor Day weekend, after which it was held without spectators. After an eight-month hiatus, it returned to its regular springtime position in 2021, however with restricted capacity.
