  • Country House, A 65-1 Long Shot, Wins Kentucky Derby After Historic Disqualification

This means that Maximum Security, who crossed over the finish line before any of his competitors, was initially named the victor, but had that title stripped away moments later. Country House and his jockey Flavien Prat then became the new winners and defied 65-1 odds.

About 20 minutes after the race ended, the race's stewards announced that Maximum Security - the only undefeated horse in the field - had been disqualified for impeding the path of at least one other horse in the race. The objection was upheld following an extensive review.

"It feels pretty darn good", Mott told the Associated Press. "It's awesome, there's no race like the Derby". The $132.40 to win was the second-highest payout in Derby history. "I really kind of lost my momentum around the turn, so I thought that I was going to win, but it cost me, actually".

"Once I got him outside, I made my move and Maximum Security started to drift out and the two horses inside had more trouble than I did, but it affected me anyway", he explained. Forward Pass got the winner's share.

The disqualification marks the first time in Kentucky Derby history that a horse that finished first did not win the race.

After the post position draw, Omaha Beach was the early 4-1 favorite with jockey Mike Smith aboard, but scratched after an entrapped epiglottis made breathing hard for the morning line favorite. Unfortunately, just days before the race, the star horse was pulled from the event, his trainer Richard Mandella confirmed, according to ESPN. The objection was filed and stewards took about 20 minutes reviewing the race from several angles before declaring Country House the victor.

Following Omaha Beach in the rankings was Roadster (5-1), Game Winner (5-1) and Improbable (6-1), all three-time race winners.
