Thoroughbred Racing:

PREAKNESS-COUNTRY HOUSE

UNDATED _ After being declared the winner of the Kentucky Derby by disqualification, Country House will not run in the Preakness, ending any chance this year at another Triple Crown. Assistant trainer Riley Mott confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the long shot winner of horse racing’s biggest event is no longer being considered to run in the second jewel of the Triple Crown. Country House was elevated to the winner’s circle at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday after Maximum Security was disqualified for impeding other horses. By Stephen Whyno. SENT: 380 words, photos.

COUNTRY HOUSE-FORGOTTEN WINNER

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Derby winner Country House isn’t a racing rock star just yet. If not for the garland of roses draped across the white saw horse outside Bill Mott’s stable at Churchill Downs or the sign beside his stall that reads 2019 Kentucky Derby winner, it might be hard to know Country House won thoroughbred racing’s marquee event.
