business news in context, analysis with attitude

The 145th running of the Kentucky Derby over the weekend resulted in a win by Maximum Security, which 20 minutes after the finish was stripped of the victory because of what racing officials said was interference - the horse apparently jumped a puddle and slid slightly to the outside in a way that impeded the progress of War of Will. As a result, Country House was declared the winner; his owners collected $1.86 million, and people who bet $2 on him collected $132.40.
