The fallout of a failed drug test by Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit continues to take shape.

The horse's trainer Bob Baffert is now temporarily suspended from racing in the State of New York.

The state's Racing Association says the suspension is pending the results of further investigations into the Kentucky Derby winner's test results.

The suspension would include the third leg of the Triple Crown races, with the Belmont Stakes set for June 5.
