Maximum Security was a wrecking ball down the stretch, he impeded every horse that was running behind him and came inches from causing a ten-horse pile up. Correct decision to DQ him.

Also horse racing has had replay long before any other sport, this isn't anything new. It's just never been necessary to use it at this particular race.

I more meant I really hope no human takes it out on him but then again I guess he's too valuable for that.

Still, what a stupid thing. Like conceptually I get it but it's such a stupid chain of events.

They will all stud. It's a platitude and all, but even getting into the Derby really is an honor. Breeding is just like betting but with more money involved.

Horse got disqualified for blocking another horse, so horse won.

But horse who complained about horses getting blocked was neither blocked nor anywhere near first nor did objection horse win.

Is it because they are high schooler glue sniffing horses? Surely that is it.

Except for Tax who is a gelding and will probably race for a few more years before being retrained as a riding horse. There was a piece on Mine That Bird (gelding who won the 2009 Derby at 50-1) earlier in the broadcast and he chases cows around a ranch now.

Holy poo poo they DQd the chud horse? I turned it off after the race and missed all the laffs. We even joked about the "unofficial result" label when he won by a length and a half
