LOUISVILLE, Ky. _ The next stop in the Triple Crown chase is the Preakness, though both Maximum Security Country House both remain non-committal for the May 18 race following the historic Kentucky Derby decision. Whether Country House tries to keep his Triple Crown hopes alive, the Derby decision will linger and remain one of several story lines off the track for the beleaguered sport heading to Pimlico.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. _ Officials cited Maximum Security for interference and the colt became the first Kentucky Derby winner to be disqualified for violating a state regulation that penalizes horses for impeding the path of another in a race. Stewards, who supervise the outcome of races, referenced Section 12 of rule 810 KAR1:016. It 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.” Sent: 225 words, photo
