The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission has suspended Maximum Security’s jockey Luis Saez 15 racing days for ride in the Kentucky Derby. His mount, Maximum Security, led every step of May 4th’s Run for the Roses and was first across the line but placed 17th for interfering with several horses at the top of the stretch and was ultimately placed 17th. It was the first disqualification in the 145 year history of the Derby.
Saez will sit out 15 racing days from May 23rd through June 14th for what the Commission ruled was, “failure to control his mount and making a proper effort to maintain a straight course, causing interference with several rival leading to disqualification of the mount.” After a 22 minute delay, Country House was declared the Derby winner at odds of 65-1.
