Kentucky Derby

Then the other guy protested and we had to sit around for a half hour while they looked at tape. I'll have to say the derby's camera work is inferior to Nascar's...or college hoops as an example.

I also said it was a small miracle that no horse fell. At one point Maximum security's right rear leg appeared to move between the two front legs of the horse he was moving over. Amazing there did not appear to be any contact.

I don't know the rules but assumed it would be left alone as the movement was complex and not all that clear.

My guess is there will be plenty of lawsuits over it as there was other aggressive riding. The yellow hat guy who was declared winner as an example moved left as they came off the turn and pinched at least two other horses.

When they interviewed Maximum Security's jock he acted guilty and mumbled something about the horse running away from him. If they had coached him a bit more perhaps it would have helped their cause. What a sloppy race!

I just watched film of it again and I believe that Max was in the lead on the rail when about four other horses caught up to him. The horse with a black face with a blaze ran up into the back of Max actually putting his nose into Max's tail and feet between his feet. This seems to distract Max who goes straight instead of turning. Then the jock gives him the whip and he takes off again running faster than any other horses once he gets clear of the rear distractions. Max did not drift right until the other horse ran up under his tail. It was a miracle none of them fell.
