President Trump tweets about Kentucky Derby outcome

Bob Baffert

That left two byproducts of note.

In one of the most dramatic decisions in the race's long history, stewards chose to disqualify Maximum Security and promoted Country House as the victor.

They cited a rule that calls for disqualification if "a leading horse or any other horse in a race swerves or is ridden to either side so as to interfere with, intimidate, or impede any other horse or jockey". Country House, front left, was declared the victor after a review.

"It feels pretty darn good", Mott said.

EPL: Liverpool turn to Brendan Rodgers to halt Man City
Rodgers has suggested that the fact that Leicester managed to overcome the Citizens earlier in the season could give them a boost. Elsewhere, Rodgers only has only one injured player to concern himself with for the trip up to the Etihad Stadium .

Ultimately, the stewards decided that Maximum Security's movement on Saturday's sloppy track was, in fact, an impediment. He appeared to win by 13/4 lengths in 2:03.93.

A light drizzle, which followed hours of overcast but dry skies, turned into heavier rain just in time for the race and drenched the main track. "I would say there are going to be a lot of excuses coming out of yesterday and it will be bigger than usual". Keefe has phone numbers for stewards at Laurel Park in Maryland, his home racetrack, saved on speed dial, he said, in case he's not able to communicate with his jockey immediately after a race. He recalled seeing Maximum Security's trainer Jason Servis, 62, replying when he offered congratulations, "Look man, sorry it happened this way".

Country House's victory was only the second in seven career starts.

This controversy will no doubt overshadow the rest of the racing season, which continues in two weeks as Country House will try to become the second consecutive horse to win the Triple Crown after Justify by winning at the Preakness. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close!

"As far as the winning goes, it's actually very ... it's bittersweet", Mott said.

He said everyone always seeks a clear outcome, where "everybody can recognize the horse as the great athlete he is".

Said Saez, "I never put anybody in danger".

The horse's co-owner told the Associated Press that the disqualification was "egregious" and they are exploring possible options to appeal.

Antonio Rüdiger ruled out of Chelsea run-in after knee surgery
But Eintracht Frankfurt , now fourth in the Bundesliga, are unbeaten in 11 home games in the Europa League, winning nine of them. Cahill joins Antonio Rudiger on the injury list, with the German centre-back sidelined for three months with knee surgery.
