A Statement from Trainer Bob Baffert, regarding the fallen Medina Spirit:

“It is with great sadness that I am reporting Medina
Spirit passed away today from a heart attack at Santa
Anita following a workout. My entire barn is devastated
by this news. Medina Spirit was a great champion, a
member of our family who was loved by all, and we are
deeply mourning his loss. I will always cherish the
proud and personal memories of Medina Spirit and his
tremendous spirit. Our most sincere condolences go
out to Mr. Amr Zedan and the entire Zedan Racing
Stables family. They are in our thoughts and prayers
as we go through this difficult time.”
