Maximum Security Owner Appeals Controversial Kentucky Derby Disqualification

Share

Country House's trainer Bill Mott, who got his first Kentucky Derby win, said: "I know the stewards had a very, very hard decision and I'm glad I wasn't in their shoes". The Canada-based Stronach Group that owns Pimlico and Santa Anita has also clashed with Baltimore officials over concerns that ownership may move the Preakness to Laurel Race Course.

The owner of Maximum Security is to appeal against the controversial decision to disqualify his horse as Kentucky Derby victor. "There's no Triple Crown on the line for us, and there's no reason to run a horse back in two weeks when you don't have to".

The long-shot appeal to overturn the result of the Kentucky Derby was rejected on the same day it was received by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission on Monday. I think they should have 14 like every other race.

Country House #20, ridden by jockey Flavien Prat, races to the finish to win the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 04, 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky.

Puck drop will come shortly after 7:30 p.m. "From my point of view, if he's seeing it he's stopping it", Backes said of Bobrovsky. The Blue Jackets have gone 25-19 here at home and they have averaged 3.30 gpg and have allowed 2.93 gpg in those games.

Maximum Security led the Kentucky Derby wire-to-wire, but two jockeys appealed the race after claiming that the winning horse had veered from his path, impeding the progress of War of Will, who then affected Long Range Toddy and Bodexpress.

The decision crowned second place horse, Country House, the official victor.

"I think if you run back in the Preakness - maybe you hit the board, maybe you don't, maybe you win - but it probably compromises his chances a little bit to win the Belmont", he said. "(In) every Kentucky Derby you could set down two or three horses or four horses if you wanted to because it's like a rodeo out there".

President Trump also weighed in on the decision on Sunday, tweeting: "The Kentucky Derby decision was not a good one".

It might go down as the most controversial finish in a Kentucky Derby.

Horse racing announcer Mike Battaglia told CNN there was an "unwritten rule" in the sport that officials give riders and horses more leeway in the Kentucky Derby, but he backed stewards for sticking to the rules. "And, what I think they are doing and what they have done is, they are putting profits ahead of the lives of both horses and people, and I don't think that's right".

West said what he found "mystifying" about the decision was, if the foul was egregious enough to merit stripping the victory from Maximum Security, why the stewards hadn't launched an inquiry on their own as soon as the race ended. Accusing a horse race.

On Monday, West blamed fellow competitor Will to Win, which ran from the No. 1 post position, for causing the chaos that saw Maximum Security penalized.

The Jason Servis-trained colt on Saturday night became the first victor in the 145-year history of the race to be demoted, when the stewards ruled he had caused interference on the home turn. After a 22-minute review, the stewards agreed and disqualified Maximum Security, elevating second-place Country House into the winner's circle. The decision made Country House, the second-place finisher, the victor of the historic race.
