Maximum Security's owner will appeal and pulls the horse from the Preakness since there would be no Triple Crown on the line

Utterly ridiculous. Any judgement in favor of the plaintiff would put an end to sports as we know it. Imagine if there were no Stanley Cup tournament because the Islanders are in court vs. the NHL, or if the Super Bowl had been delayed a month while the Eagles sued the NFL.
If he thought he had a chance to succeed, he would ask for the Preakness to be postponed.

More importantly what happens to the winning tickets that are now losers?

And there may be people who tore up the tickets that would now be eligible for payout if there was this kind of reversal

I dont see it happening either

The ticket money is gone. It's already been paid out and can't be retrieved.

5-1 is hilarious. Iíd give anyone 100-1. The stewards make the final decision. There isnít any reason to reverse anything. This is making the Wests look bad. They had a great reputation, and this is ruining it.

gamblers and their bad beats

I don't think there's anyone in the whole world who has any empathy for a gambler who had a bad beat - it falls into the who gives an eff category

probably not even other gamblers

probably not even the gambler himself who had the bad beat - he probably doesn't even have any empathy for himself 😃

Marx's owner had a pretty good reputation before this, but he is coming off like a punk.

Here is a really dumb and moronic view of the derby. This chump cant even spell the name of the race. What an idiot

Donald Trump
"The Kentuky Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough & tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch. Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close!?" "

I consider myself an expert and I believe it was the absolute right call.


I agree
They don't make that call that then other jockeys will pull that same move in other races to get an advantage

While many went from winners to losers, at least one punter in Las Vegas reaped a big benefit from the disqualification:
Quote: Fox News

A Las Vegas bettor turned an $8 wager on the Kentucky Derby into more than $78,000 at The Mirage on Saturday after Country House was declared the winner, according to the casinoís sportsbook manager.

The gambler raked in the payday after placing two identical $4 superfecta bets that paid out $51,400 each -- or $39,065 after taxes, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Betting on a superfecta means picking the first four finishers of a race in the exact order. At the Derby, Country House won, followed by Code of Honor, Tacitus and Improbable. Maximum Security was disqualified after a review by the stewards...
