No Triple Crown Winner This Year

(Louisville, KY) — Kentucky Derby winner Country House will not run in the Preakness Stakes. The Daily Racing Form says trainer Bill Mott confirmed the news today that his horse developed a little bit of a cough so he’s off the training list and off the Preakness list. Country House was declared the winner of the Kentucky Derby Saturday following a stewards’ inquiry that led to the disqualification of first-place finisher Maximum Security.
