'Country House' wins Kentucky Derby after 'Maximum Security' disqualified

The winner of this year's Kentucky Derby went to the second-place finisher after the lead racer was disqualified for the first time ever.

Race officials tweeted that "Country House" was named named the victor in the derby's first-ever "inquiry ruling."

According to announcers and race officials, the first-place finisher "Maximum Security" was disqualified after the horse strayed from its position and moved further towards the outside of the track, thereby cutting off several competitors from passing him.

With 65-1 odds, "Country House" was a major upset to win the race. "Maximum Security" was the favorite, with 9-1 odds, after previously winning this year's Florida Derby.
