It’s not often that a horse is disqualified from the Kentucky Derby, but Saturday evening the unthinkable happened.
Country House was declared the winner of Saturday’s Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs after the second disqualification in the race’s 145-year history. Maximum Security crossed the finish line first in 2:03.93 but was moved to 17th place after a lengthy review.
Then all of the horse racing experts, I mean the folks who watch a Horse Race once a year went all batshit crazy on Twitter.
