Country House wins 145th Kentucky Derby

Local Sports

What an unbelievable finish to the 145th Kentucky Derby Saturday afternoon.

Maximum Security, the favorite heading in looked like he had this locked down.

Final stretch here, that’s Maximum Security in the lead, continuing to pull away, and he cross the finish line first to win the Kentucky Derby!

Celebrations all around.

Hold up though.

Of course, we have replay in horse racing.

And as they were coming around the final turn, apparently Maximum Security impeded Country House’s ability to move.

After a rider’s objection, it was deemed that is what happened and for the first time in Derby history, we have a disqualification on the winner, making Country House the actual Kentucky Derby champ.

Country House went off at 65-1 odds.
