Neither will Kentucky Derby victor Country House, who was ruled out Tuesday, trainer Bill Mott said. He remains in Louisville. "His appetite is good", Mott said. He doesn't have a fever. But he's coughing. We drew blood. "If that jock (Flavien Prat) wasn't smart and saw there was something going on at the head of the stretch and figured he could get pushed up, if he doesn't claim foul, the official sign is going up".
Kentucky Derby victor Country Dwelling is now not going to accelerate within the Preakness Would maybe per chance well furthermore simply 18, it became reported Tuesday. Code of Honor, placed second in the Kentucky Derby, was third in the Florida Derby. He has raced monthly - a maiden race in January, the Risen Star Stakes in February, the Louisiana Derby in March, the Arkansas Derby in April and then the Kentucky Derby.
Racing stewards took 22 minutes to review video and interview riders before disqualifying Maximum Security and elevating Country House to first. The focus is on the bettors who lost $9 million, but on the flip side of that coin are the bettors who were elated to find out their tickets that read "Country House" were now winners.
"When you see what happens and after you do your homework, it's probably the right call", Bravo said.
THE Kentucky Horse Racing Commission dismissed an appeal against Maximum Security's dramatic Kentucky Derby disqualification on Monday as the thoroughbred's owners raised the prospect of a legal battle for the horse's reinstatement.
Country House was a long shot with 65-1, but the horse made it second through the finishing line.
Interested in Triple Crown?
Country House being scratched is the tip of the iceberg of things going wrong with the Triple Crown. It was the first time the horse who crossed the finish line first was not declared the victor.
"I think there's no Triple Crown on the line for us", West told Samantha Gunthrie and Craig Melvin. The horse, in fact, is still at Churchill Downs.
"I tried to handle this in a nice, quiet way, and I didn't think there was enough said about the trip our horse had", Casse told the Courier Journal on Tuesday. So we'll let him gather himself and point to one of the other races.
