Kentucky Derby 145

The eyes of the world were on Louisville as the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby took place at Churchill Downs on May 4. The race results took an unprecedented turn after Maximum Security crossed the finish line first but was disqualified following an interference and objection from other riders. The garland of roses and $3,000,000 purse instead went to Country House led by jockey Flavien Prat, trained by William I. Mott and owned by Maury Shields, Guinness McFadden, Larry Foxwood, Nanci Foxwood and Jamie Roth.

Maximum Security entered the race with 4-1 odds and quickly busted out to lead the race, crossing the finish line with a lead of 1 and 1/2 lengths. However, the jockey for Country House (65-1 odds), Flavien Prat, filed an objection at the conclusion of the race, sending the Derby into a review process.
