Horse blocked 2 or 3 OTHER horses, but the fuss was raised by an unrelated horse so that he could get the 1st place horse dq'd and become the winner

I don't care either way, just curious, but is there some sort of governing body that could overturn that decision?

The governing body is the ones who made the decision, I believe.

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

After the 1982 Brazilian Grand Prix, Renault successfully objected to Nelson Piquet and Keke Rosberg using a loophole to run their cars underweight, giving their own driver Alain Prost the post-race W. It didn't really matter that pretty much the entire field was using the same loophole; they only objected to the winner "cheating".

There's no point complaining about the other horses doing the same if it doesn't affect your position. :shrug:

Horace Horse.

Or a name which was vaguely inappropriate but enough that they would allow me to keep the name.

STOP DOING HEROIN

I think the funniest part of this is that every year NBC banks on the Derby winner as a potential Triple Crown contender to drive ratings for Preakness and Belmont, because nobody will give a poo poo otherwise. Maximum Security was this year's frontrunner and like the fifth year in a row that the Derby favorite won, but thanks to this hilarious technicality one of the field's longest shots ended up "winning" and has basically no shot at the other races.

Preakness will probably still draw well because this whole thing was so absurd and unprecedented that people will tune in just to see what happens next. But uh, good luck with those Belmont ratings.

Horse that came in first will not run in Preakness. Now horse that won will not run in Preakness either.

NBC execs already crying over ratings. Maybe there will be a rematch in the Belmont.

After finally watching a replay, DQ Horse definitely drifted into other horse's face and got in his path

But the horse that won and was not impeded filing the objection instead of the horse that was impeded is very odd.
