Maximum Security Instant Replay Interference

instant replay, kentucky Derby, Maximum Security

Maximum Security doesn’t know he finished 17th in the Kentucky Derby. He still thinks he won. But, after reviewing the instant replay for 22 minutes, track officials ruled interference and disqualified the winner for the first time in the 145 year ¬†history of the Run for the Roses.

The instant replay showed Mad Max drifted out of his lane and hip checked War of Will. That caused a chain reaction slowing other horses. Thus the 17th place finish for Maximum Security. He also kicked mud on the horses behind him. Country House, a 65-1 shot, was named the winner.

Trump Maximum Security Tweet

President Trump tweeted that the ruling was “politically incorrect.”

Owner Gary West appealed but was denied. Now he says he’ll sue. But Max doesn’t know anything about that either.

He allegedly turned $80,000 into $1.2 million. Not Hillary Clinton scale growth, but not bad.

Still, the Browns cut him. No word yet if he’ll be called up to owner Jimmy Haslem’s Pilot Flying J franchise.
