There is controversy today in the aftermath of the Kentucky Derby debacle, when winning horse, Maximum Security, was disqualified for 'impeding other horses', and relegated to last place.
A new scandal has emerged, of potential Russian involvement in the 20-minute stewards' inquiry, which resulted in 65-1 outsider, Country House, being declared the winner.
It's thought that several unnamed Russian oligarchs had placed vast sums of money on Country House at bookmakers in the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands and the Dominican Republic, and that their intervention and influence caused the disqualification of Maximum Security.
The eventual winner was ridden by jockey Flavian Prat, and trained by Bill Mott, two names which, aside from anything else that may have happened during the race, are enough to cause a certain amount of suspicion.
President Donald Trump was upset at the decision to disqualify Maximum Security, but reversed this opinion later, after chatting to Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
