I admire him. I think he’s the No. 1 face of racing right now. I just feel like it’s been unjust what’s happened. He obviously is innocent but most people don’t understand it,” Ha detto Lukas.

What they don’t understand is we have gone from basic chemistry testing system to a very, very sophisticated testing. Very sophisticated. And we haven’t changed the threshold levels. We haven’t got it down to where contamination and a topical salve like in the case of the Derby winner will be tested. And so we wake up and all of a sudden the testing is strong but the rules have not changed. We got to adjust them.
