Flavien Prat on Country House, left, raced against Luis Saez on Maximum Security, third from left, during the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. Maximum Security was disqualified for interference after the race and Country House was named the winner.

As he watched the simulcast of Saturday's Kentucky Derby, David Hooper could tell something was amiss as the leaders came out of the final turn.

"I thought I saw something happen that was different than normal," said Hooper, the presiding steward for the Minnesota Racing Commission. "The horse with the white silks suddenly dropped back very quickly, and I knew something caused it."
