Owner of Disqualified Horse Plans to Appeal

Luis Saez jockey of Maximum Security reacts after learning of his disqualification

Yet there's a simple, reasonable solution to the issue that has shrouded the 145th Kentucky Derby in controversy.

After a 20-minute video review, officials found that Maximum Security, which was 4-1 favourite to win the 1¼ mile race, was guilty of a contact foul when it appeared to take a wide turn and impede other horses in the home stretch. That horse, named Maximum Security, got in trouble for blocking some of its competitors, even though it might have just slipped out of position due to the muddiness of the track. Suddenly, skipping the Preakness Stakes didn't seem like such a good idea, considering that he now had a ludicrously improbable Kentucky Derby victor on his hands with Country House.

West was also critical of Churchill Downs for the number of horses allowed to race in the Kentucky Derby, which usually features 20 horses but this year was reduced to 19 after a late scratch.

"But, yes, I saw the horse move out".

"I don't know if anyone else in the country bet $4 to win that super", Shelton said. "If there is any interference that in any way affects the outcome the offending horse has to be taken down". "No", he said, "We're not going to run in the Preakness".

"Maximum Security moves off that rail, comes out, impedes the path of War of Will, gets in the way of Long Rainge Toddy and Country House", Tirico said.

Mott said he will keep Country House at Churchill Downs for the time being, waiting until the Tuesday or Wednesday of Preakness week to ship him up to Pimlico if the horse's owners so desire.

The disqualification ruling handed the win to Country House, which had been a 65-1 long shot. And Country House has been busy, having run in the Louisiana Derby on March 23, the Arkansas Derby on April 13 and now the Kentucky Derby. West told me today that he thought maybe this would be a good time to graciously bow out of racing. They turned around in sometimes a week or two weeks.

He said the North Koreans began firing a barrage of short-range projectiles beginning at approximately 9:06 a.m. on Saturday. The missiles were short-range, and flew 70-200 kilometers into the Sea of Japan, which Koreans call the East Sea.

But for now, limiting the Kentucky Derby field is the next step. Accusing a horse race.

Maybe Trump thinks that all the people who attend the Kentucky Derby so they can drink mint juleps while wearing ridiculous suits and silly hats are the same salt-of-the-earth, blue-collar Americans who he claims to represent. That's just looking at it as a trainer and what would be normal.

The Kentucky Derby, and the chase for the Triple Crown that begins there, has always been held out as a possible gateway to engage new fans. It never has been.

"Right after the race, I had the trainer call the stewards and very nicely ask them if they would be willing to visit with us after the races were over", West said.

It is the first time a Derby victor has been disqualified because of a foul on the track.

"Having the Derby victor, you're pretty much forced to go into the Preakness", Mott said.

"Well it shows that the sport is well governed by the racing officials, that they made a very tough decision and in one of the largest and the biggest race in the United States", he said.
