Update from Patrick W. O’Leary regarding the result of Saturday’s Kentucky Derby Race:
What a finish ! The horse that crossed the finish line first was disqualified. That is the first time in the history of the Derby where the winner was disqualified. The horse that came in second was declared the winner.
The horse that was declared the winner was a long shot. If you bet $2 to win you won $132!
The track attendance was 150,729 people. That is the entire population of County Wexford!
Sincere thanks Patrick for this wonderfully comprehensive update on the event. (S.R.)
