Kentucky Derby victor to miss Preakness Stakes

  • Country Horse will join Maximum Security in sitting out Preakness

For the true victor in my mind, Maximum Security, the team felt no need to run the horse with no Triple Crown at stake.

The Daily Racing Form noted it will be the first time since 1951 that none of the first four home in the Kentucky Derby will tackle the Preakness Stakes.

Country House #20 was declared the victor after a stewards review disqualified Maximum Security #7 at the 145th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., on May 4, 2019.

Maximum Security's co-owner, Gary West, appealed the stewards' decision on Monday, which was later denied by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

"If the state racing commission refuses to hear about it, I think this is something that's big enough that the entire racing world is looking at this", he continued during an interview on The Today Show.

"I saw him finish second, but the sound was off, and I could tell there was a discussion going on for a while after the race", he said.

The 2019 Preakness Stakes is set for Saturday, May 18 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. That's about $9 million that bettors lost after their horse was the first to make it across the finish line.

China's Commerce Ministry expressed its "deep regret" and warned that Beijing will not "capitulate to any pressure". Each side possibly believes it is better positioned than the other to survive the dispute, according to Kennedy.

Beyond the Triple Crown, NBC Sports broadcasts some of the most important and prestigious events in all of horse racing.

The buzz instead has focused on how the 65-1 long shot was elevated to champion in the most shocking decision in Derby history. That query comes in response to the news, reported by ESPN's David Purdum, that the disqualification that led to a longshot winning the Kentucky Derby this past weekend cost bettors $9 million.

"He and Code of Honor have been pretty close together in their races", Hennig said. "Even his running, he was up in the race, he looked like a different horse the first half of the race".

"I've never liked training a horse that's given an indication that he's sick", Mott said. "West repeated those claims to the Blood-Horse Tuesday, which quoted him as saying, "(War of Will) did things to us that could have endangered the entire field.

The absence of both Country House and Maximum Security means Improbable, the Bob Baffert-trainee who placed fifth in the Derby, and Code of Honor, the Derby runner-up, figure to be the favorites if they are entered into the Preakness.

Maximum Security is scheduled to leave Churchill Downs on Monday and arrive Tuesday at Monmouth Park, where trainer Jason Servis is based, the New Jersey track said.
