    I think somebody got robbed.

    I screwed that horse by picking him to win.

    Not a great decision. The best horse won and he only affected the 1. To DQ the 7 and leave the 1 in the same spot is inconsistent.

    However, watching the "winners" after in the winner's circle did make me think of this.

    Why did the horse leave the rail? Have you EVER seen a horse leave the rail and swerve in front of the other horses and then back again to the rail? The shortest distance to the finish line is along the rail. There is NO reason to EVER leave the rail if you are in the lead.

    Sure, it’s a race. Why shouldn’t you be able to block? Except those are the rules and it was pretty plain as day. The right decision was made.

    I thought it was the right call. The leader swerved out six feet (2 lanes) to squeeze a horse making a move to his right and then immediately went back to the rail to deal with another horse that was pulling ahead against the rail. The infraction was clear and obvious.

    Terrible injustice. It was VERY WET & MUDDY. So the horse jumped a puddle, shifted right & then the jockey got him back to the rail. It's called INSTINCT, not INTENTIONAL. How did he know another horse was that close or not? The jockeys don't have rear-view mirrors and the horses have blinders. Maximum Security led wire to wire. He was the best horse. If any of the other horses/jockeys didn't want to have their progress impeded, then they should've been out front to begin with.
