I thought it was a fair call. Initial winner, Maximum Security, crossed the line and impeded 2 other horses. It could have been far worse if it's leg hit the horse behind in the lane. Country House deserved the win. Rules are rules and should be maintained even at the Kentucky Derby!

@willomenia It's like track. If you go out of your lane and nearly trip up a runner, you are going to be called out. I was rooting for him too, but rules are rules. Just a shame. Did you see that final video? It could have been a disaster.

Now how do we ever really know if the best horse won? And what happens to the possiblty of a triple crown win this year? If a disquallified horse happens to win the next two races, what happens to the Triple Crown, and by the same scenario, what if the horse that won by default wins the next two races, can it really be a Triple Crown winner ? Can we really know whether that horse could have won the race if there had been no incident. So many questions.
I know that rules are meant to be followed, even when it's very hard. This one was especially harsh But just for fun I've always bet $10.00 on the horse with the greatest odds. This year I'm recovering from a stroke and unable to get out and place a bet. It's just a silly thing I did with a friend, never expecting to win. She passed this year, but wish I could have bet on today's winner.
