Derby officials say Maximum Security broke interference rule

Leading up to the race, Maximum Security held 8-1 odds to win the race and was widely considered one of the favorites to win. That left two byproducts of note.

Country House was declared the victor of the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday following "an inquiry ruling" and the disqualification of Maximum Security, officials said. The referees said Maximum Security interfered with several other horses midway through the final turn.

Country House finished second in the slop before an objection was raised, causing a lengthy delay while stewards repeatedly reviewed several angles of video footage before he was elevated into the winner's circle.

Servis said he did not have a good view of the alleged foul.

It was the first disqualification in the history of the race. He appeared to win by 13/4 lengths in 2:03.93. The track conditions were listed as sloppy.

Maximum Security closed as a favorite at 9-2, and more than $6.2 million was bet on the colt.

The Kentucky Derby may be nicknamed "the greatest two minutes in sports", but the conversation surrounding the outfits and hats at the annual race lasts way more than that.

"I never doubted it". Long regarded as an elite horseman of uncommon patience and as the trainer of 1990s two-time horse of the year Cigar, the South Dakota native then said of the stewards, "I'm glad I wasn't in their shoes".

Yet it wasn't a maiden claimer, it was the most important race in the United States so the decision by stewards was always going to be heavily scrutinized and will be for years to come.
