And like that the Triple Crown is over - Country House will not race the Preakness due to a "cough". Only the 10th time ever and the first time in 23 years that the Kentucky Derby "winner" will not race in the Preakness. Of course, this does save the ignominy of the horse and jockey being booed at the Preakness - that wouldn't have looked good.

I think there was a possibility if Maximum Security hadn't committed the foul. The reason I wrote before the race that I'd have picked him if the poll hadn't closed is that he was undefeated and his average margin of victory was 9 1/2 lengths. He's a dominant horse. And he was physically dominant in that Kentucky Derby. There was just a screw up that caused him to be disqualified.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

I saw a European lady on TV saying that by American rules it's disqualification if there was interference. She said that by European rules it has to be both 1) there was interference and 2) the interference changed who won the race.

This incident shows that the United States needs to go to the European rules. And actually she didn't say it was just European rules. She said it was pretty much the rules everywhere except the United States.

That incident, overturning that result, is a stain on American horse racing. Not a good thing at all.

Well then he needs to go out and win the Preakness and the Belmont and be the “People’s Triple Crown” winner... :lol:

Or, you know your horse sucks when you take 125 lbs off of it and it finishes second to last.

Well, the horse was too dumb to know that if you're running on the outside, you're running the longer distance..

Question: If that riderless horse finished in the money and you had a ticket on him, do you get paid?
