Race Recap/Replay

On Saturday, May 4, 2019, America’s most storied sporting event rewrote its own history on Saturday when the 65/1 longshot Country House was named the first-ever winner via disqualification of the Kentucky Derby (G1) Presented by Woodford Reserve at Churchill Downs. Maximum Security, who crossed the finish line first, was taken down via DQ after a 22 minute review, and placed 17th.

Country House’s win was his first since breaking his maiden at Gulfstream Park on January 17 at third asking. The 3-year-old son of Lookin At Lucky record now stands at 7-2-2-1 with $2,120,175 earned for breeder Mrs. J. V. Shields, Jr., and co-owners E. J. M. McFadden, Jr., and LNJ Foxwoods. The win the first for trainer Bill Mott and jockey Flavien Prat.
