Maximum Security (#7-pink cap) was disqualified from the 145th Kentucky Derby. After a 22-minute review (replays of TV), based on objections by jockeys, the objection was upheld unanimously (3-0). As a result, the second-place finisher, Country House (#20, yellow cap) became first, and first place finisher became 17th. The “connections” of Maximum Security are filing their objection into the proper avenues. This is the first winner of the Kentucky Derby to be disqualified via an objection or inquiry. In 1968 the winner, Dancers Image, was placed last due to a highly disputed “phenylbutazone” (anti-inflammatory)drug post-race decision.
