I disagree with the DQ and I don’t fall into either of the “only” 2 camps as you describe them. I didn’t have any money on any of the horses that were involved. And my position on the DQ decision is not based on any emotion. I just watched all the relays and concluded that it was a mistake to DQ the winner for what happened at the top of the stretch. If that is the new standard for a DQ in the Derby then we’re probably going to have many objections and DQs to sort out in the future. There is always bumping and jostling like this in the Derby. The CD stewards have now drawn a new line for permissible behavior. This new standard is not going to help racing in the long run. It’s going to be just more fuel on the “ban racing” fire.
