President Trump: Best Horse Didn't Win Kentucky Derby

145th Kentucky Derby

(Washington, DC) - President Trump isn't agreeing with the decision to disqualify Maximum Security as the winner of the 145th Kentucky Derby. 

On Twitter Sunday, the President explained "the best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close!" 

 

The President said "only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur," adding the Derby "was a rough and tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch." 

An objection was placed after Maximum Security initially won the historic race. A video review determined Maximum Security impeded War of Will. Country House was then named the winner. 

This is the first time the apparent winner of the Kentucky Derby was disqualified after the race.
