I was watching the Kentucky Derby on the big screen and when the races ended, I turned to everyone in the area and “said hold your tickets. There will be an objection.” Many said “no” in the Derby and I replied “Mark my words.”
Well is the disqualification really over? It is hard to say, I suppose someone could try to sue.
The fact is that Luis Saez made a mistake. The track was muddy, the conditions were awful, the stress intense and he made a mistake. Some mistakes are costly.
As for me, the rules apply especially in the big races.
As for the people who were gambling and betting on the race – that is why they call it gambling. There is no guarantee when you gamble.
If you have an opinion I would love to hear it.
