The Kentucky Derby has always held a special place in the pantheon of American sports.

The horse race, which has been run since 1875, is legendary in and of its own right.  It has been seen as the ultimate test of thoroughbred prowess, jockey skill, and the wit of American gamblers.

Off the track, however, the Derby comes complete with class and pageantry unrivaled the world over.  All in attendance, both in person and at a myriad of watch parties around the country, are encouraged to participate by showing off their most outrageous headgear and sipping on the official beverage of the race:  The mint julep.

In 2019, for instance, the drama on the track led to an unprecedented piece of officiating.

Maximum Security co-owner Gary West criticized race stewards’ disqualification of his horse’s Kentucky Derby victory as “egregious” and said he was pondering his next step, including a possible appeal.

“I think this is the most egregious disqualification in the history of horse racing, and not just because it’s our horse,” West told The Associated Press by phone Saturday night.

Several hours earlier, Maximum Security appeared to back up his undefeated record with a 1¾-length victory in the slop over Country House in the Kentucky Derby. The victory was overturned 22 minutes later with a stunning decision by the stewards to disqualify the 9-2 second choice because of interference.

The horse then declared the winner was a massive longest.

Runner-up Country House, a 65-1 long shot, was elevated to the winner’s circle to the astonishment of Maximum Security’s team, which insisted the horse did not cut off his competitors.

West is weighing his options for appeal, including lodging formal complaints with Derby officials.

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission has thoroughly reviewed the race, according to spokespeople.

Joe Biden is now apparently for defunding law enforcement. From Fox News: Joe Biden said in an interview Wednesday that some funding should “absolutely” be redirected from police, amid calls from some in his party to “defund the police” in the wake of the protests across the country. Biden’s campaign has said he does not support defunding the police. But in a Now This interview with activist Ady Barkan, the presumptive Democratic nominee said that police forces don’t need surplus military equipment, saying this is what leads them to “become the enemy” in a community.

Failed Dem Candidate Receives ‘Anonymous’ Racist Letter, Turns Out He Wrote It to Himself

Paging Jussie!

Democrats are the best. It’s as if they honestly believe they can get away with anything, no matter how heinous, asinine, and/or nonsensical. Meet this failed political candidate from Oregon. He must’ve been in contact with Jussie Smollett on this one. From Metro Voice News: In yet another example of a faked hate crime, an Oregon politician has admitted he fabricated the entire thing. Oregon Democrat Jonathan Lopez confessed to penning a racist letter to himself after he initially claimed it was anonymously sent to him, authorities said. Lopez, who is Latino and was a recent Democrat candidate for commissioner in Umatilla County, had originally claimed he found the hate-screed in his mailbox on June 23, the East Oregonian reported. CONTINUED: News outlets and immigrant groups immediately pinned the incident on anti-immigrant sentiment allegedly stirred up by President Donald Trump’s southern border wall. It is one of hundreds of similar incidents blamed on conservatives that later were found to be fabricated, but not before significant national media attention. Jason Edmiston, chief of police in Hermiston, said: “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.” What are the odds this story makes headlines tonight? Imagine if he was Republican, though! Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
