Okay. After 22 minutes studying the video replay of the first horse across the finish line, Maximum Security, drifting out and impeding another horse, three Kentucky Derby stewards unanimously agreed to DQ the horse which meant the winner would be Country House. Maximum Security had been given the odds of 9-2 to win the derby while Country House went off at 65-1.

The owners and trainers of Maximum Security are contemplating appeals to the stewards or possibly the racing commission. It's the first time the first horse across the finish line in the Derby has been DQ'd.

Donald Trump's take:


Political Correctness? Hilarious.

A winner at the Kentucky Derby with 65-1 odds.

That's pretty spectacular.


(Hope no Country House bettors tore up their tickets after the initial results got posted....)

First time ever a Kentucky Derby winner was disqualified.

Also, the longest odds ever for a winner.

So? Lot's of folks think it was a big cheat. Since MY house got cheated,I agree. However,I kinda re-Couped my loss. Tacitus moved up to third and my "Show" ticket paid off.

A big cheat would be different than calling it political correctness for some reason.

Usually when people complain about political correctness they are complaining about someone applying impartial, ethical standards to come to an answer which is "correct".

You know. Using reason and rules and neutrality so you can get things right.

As opposed to just making shit up in your own mind and damn the consequences to other people.
