The Hill reports:
President Trump on Sunday blamed “political correctness” for the decision to disqualify the Kentucky Derby’s first-place finisher, claiming that the best horse did not win. “Country House,” a horse with just 65-1 odds to win, was named the winner on Saturday in the annual event’s first-ever “inquiry ruling.”
Race officials made the decision after disqualifying “Maximum Security” for straying from his position and moving further towards the outside of the track on the final leg. The move cut off several competitors from passing him, officials rule.
The Kentuky Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough and 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!
