Country House out of Preakness


Mott told reporters Saturday he had initially planned to keep Country House out of the Preakness and save him for the Belmont on June 8, but winning the Derby made running in Baltimore nearly an obligation.

Country House was a 65-1 long-shot at the 1-1/4 mile Kentucky Derby where he finished second on a muddy track before objections were raised, causing a delay that ultimately led to a stunning reversal.

Since then, 11 of the 22 Preakness races have been won by the Kentucky Derby victor.

"I think this is something that's big enough that the entire racing world is looking at this, and I think they deserve an opportunity to really know what was going on", West said.

Cameras certainly factored into Country House being draped in roses.

For Maximum Security, the disappointing reversal spoiled what appeared to be his statement performance after 4-0 start.

It was the first time the horse that crossed the finish line first in the Derby was denied victory because it hindered another horse.

The Geneva Country House sold 643 burgers, and 562 were sold in Lisle, Banks said.

Maximum Security is the first Derby victor disqualified for interference in the race's 145-year history.

A stunned Mott, 65, was nearly apologetic about the outcome considering the circumstances. Country House #20 was declared the victor after a stewards review disqualified Maximum Security #7.

Saez has not spoken to the media since race day, but during the broadcast said Maximum Security "ducked out a little" after hearing the roar of the crowd, 150,00 strong, at the turn for home. "Hopefully, everybody that could be a naysayer would understand what the stewards saw and what the horsemen probably see".

Dean Timson, a partner in the Country House restaurants, said having fun and generating some publicity were behind the promotion.

This will mean that there is no chance for a Triple Crown victor this year.

Skipping the Preakness means the horse instead will rest and continue basking in the welcome quiet. But he acknowledged the race's importance and added, "The challenge of the Triple Crown is that there's three races really close together, and it takes a champion".

Mott is still wrapping his mind around everything, which becomes easier with each congratulatory hug and handshake from horsemen.

Mott told Jay Privman the horse "developed a little bit of a cough". "But now we need to get back to work as usual".

Before the 2019 Preakness Stakes will come in, there are lots of racing showdown that takes place in some states where most horse races are attending to prove their worth.
