History was made in Louisville on Saturday as the horse that finished first in the Kentucky Derby did not win the race.


"Country House was named the winner of 145th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday after the unofficial winner, Maximum Security, was disqualified," Sports Illustrated explained. "Jockey Flavien Prat, who rode Country House, filed an objection claiming that Maximum Security came out of his lane in the final turn. Stewards reviewed the footage and ruled in his favor. Saturday's decision marks the first time in Kentucky Derby history that the horse to cross the finish line first did not win."

The result reminded many of the 2016 presidential election, when Donald Trump was selected by the Electoral College, despite the fact 2,868,686 more ballots were cast for Hillary Clinton.
