Kentucky Derby DQ costs bettors around $9M

Baffert has 3 chances to win Kentucky Derby and tie record

In 1968, Dancer's Image won but failed a drug test and was disqualified.

Country House was not directly affected by the incident, although the horses to his inside were forced outward.

The horse Maximum Security was initially named as the champion, but the next two finishers lodged a complaint against Maximum Security which ultimately got him disqualified.

Prat claimed that Maximum Security ducked out in the final turn and forced several horses to steady.

West said his team is exploring options to appeal, starting with the stewards.

As the stewards re-watched footage of the race in order to decide on a victor, many took to social media to poke fun of the situation. But, after a 20-minute review, stewards ruled his hind right leg bumped into War of Will, changing the outcome of the race. "Why is Steve Harvey calling the Kentucky Derby victor?"

Country House had 65-to-1 odds.

"This was my dream".

"I don't think anybody wants to win that way", Mott told The Washington Post.

"He started getting a little bit scared", Saez said. "I really kind of lost my momentum around the turn, so I thought that I was going to win, but it cost me, actually".

Maximum Security couldn't secure his win at the Kentucky Derby.

In other words, because War Of Will, Bodexpress and Long Range Toddy were impacted from achieving their best positions, Maximum Security had to be disqualified.

Mott didn't blame Saez, theorizing the horse drifted out on his own due to its inexperience.

The speedy Maximum Security, the only undefeated horse in the field, had sat close to the lead for most of the way and outslugged his rivals.

The track said wagering from all sources on the 14-race card totaled a record $250.9 million, up 11% over last year's total of $225.7 million.

The victor of the race takes home $US1.86 million ($2.65 million), and sets up a chance to win the Triple Crown, if they can go on to win the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.
