Country House out of Preakness Stakes in Triple Crown debacle

Kentucky Derby Winner Country House Out of Preakness Stakes Due to Cough

And Tuesday's announcement that he won't run in the Preakness, ending any chance this year of another Triple Crown victor, likely won't elevate his profile. Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert will have two major entries which are Game Winner and Roadster.

The Kentucky Derby victor has not missed the Preakness since 1996, when Grindstone suffered a slight knee injury in the Derby.

Because of how the Kentucky Derby went, Mott said he and those around the horse were not as disappointed as they would've been under normal circumstances. Country House #20 was declared the victor after a stewards review disqualified Maximum Security #7.

Mott said his winning horse, which captured the 145th Derby crown under controversial circumstances, will miss the second leg of the Triple Crown on May 18 because it developed a cough.

Betting closed before the race with Maximum Security a 9-2 favorite. "I don't know", Mott said Monday. "And. I believe it will eventually show that if the 1 horse would have finished ahead of our horse, we would have had every right in the world to claim an objection against the 1 horse". West said there wasn't much jockey Luis Saez could do to control Maximum Security on a sloppy track.




Since then, 11 of the 22 Preakness races have been won by the Kentucky Derby victor. Earlier this year, Game Winner and Roadster were on the top list of possible Triple Crown winners.

Gary West has done several media interviews since Saturday, and War of Will owner Gary Barber took exception to West's comment in a TV interview that his horse caused the infraction in the Derby.

Country House had raced extensively for a modern 3-year-old thoroughbred to this point.

It was the first time the horse that crossed the finish line first in the Derby was denied victory because it hindered another horse. "Even his running, he was up in the race, he looked like a different horse the first half of the race". These races serve as the Preakness and Triple Crown races where possible Preakness Stakes picks and title holders are produced. The Triple Crown includes wins at the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.

"I never thought the horse had a chance", John said, noting that he and his wife bet $5 on Country House because of its name. So we'll let him gather himself and point to one of the other races.
