The race officials disqualified Maximum Security for interference and handed the win to second place finisher Country House.

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. This meant that Country House, the second place finisher, is the 2019 Kentucky Dery victor. "I really feel awful for the connections, for the owners".

"I never doubted it. (Maximum Security) put people lives in danger, he put jockeys' lives in danger".

Bettors not only have the opportunity to wager on which horse will win the race, but they can also bet on the order of finish. "I would think there are probably going to be a few at Baltimore because normal Derbys kind of separate the men from the boys".

"I know the stewards had a very, very hard decision and I'm glad I wasn't in their shoes", said trainer Bill Mott, who got his first Kentucky Derby win.

Confirmed: SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule was destroyed during recent test fire mishap
As you mentioned already, Crew Dragon is built upon the heritage of Cargo Dragon but these are different spacecraft. SpaceX has delayed a supply run to the International Space Station, back to full power after quick repairs.

"I checked [up] pretty hard when the 7 [Maximum Security] came out as far as he did, " said Tyler Gaffalione, aboard War of Will. "The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close!"

Maximum Security led the Kentucky Derby every step of the way except for the final one - into the winner's circle.

Country House, a longshot who placed second, was awarded the title after officials determined that Maximum Security had committed an interference foul.

"We had a lengthy review of the race", Borden said at a news briefing.

But as you'd imagine, just as the purse increased to a record high this year, so has the prize money that's given to the victor: The winning team in the 2019 Kentucky Derby will be awarded $1.86 million, up from roughly $1.24 million in 2018. It is the first win in the race for Mott and Prat, and the son of Preakness Stakes victor Lookin At Lucky will now attempt to emulate his sire by winning the second leg of the US Triple Crown. The colt was the 9-2 second choice in the market. The last objection in the Derby was filed in 2001 by jockey John Velasquez, who claimed interference by victor Monarchos and jockey Jorge Chavez.
