President Trump on Sunday blamed “political correctness” for a controversial decision at the Kentucky Derby that led to the disqualification of the apparent winner in favor of a 65-to-1 long shot.
”The Kentuky Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough and tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch,” Trump wrote on Twitter, misspelling the state’s name. “Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby – not even close!”
Undefeated Maximum Security crossed the finish line at Churchill Downs on Saturday ahead of Country House and Code of Honor in the 145th Run for the Roses.
But 15 minutes later, following a rider’s objection, Maximum Security was stripped of the title after stewards ruled that the horse had impeded War of Will, giving the win to Country House.
It was the first disqualification in the 145-year history of the Kentucky Derby.
