    Last report I saw they had not yet take the crown away officially yet, but they planned on additional tests for confirmation.

    Anyone know if this is the first time since 1968?

    If I Google the words - derby horse failed drug test since 1968

    This is the response that Google gives me at the top of the page:

    The only horse to be disqualified for medication after winning the Derby is Dancer's Image in 1968. Medina Spirit is Baffert's fifth horse known to have failed a drug test in just over a year.

    You're correct when you say that they intend to carry out further tests in order to verify their findings.
