LOUISVILLE (CBSLA) — Country House (65-1) won the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs Saturday after Maximum Security (4-1) crossed the finish line first but was disqualified after video review.

It was ruled that Maximum Security stepped out of its lane and impeded the run of another horse.

The disqualification marks the first time in Kentucky Derby history that a horse that finished first did not win the race.

At 65-1, Country House was the second-largest longshot in the history of the race after Donerail at 91-1 in 1913.
