LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Country House's stunning victory in the Kentucky Derby paid off big as a 65-1 long shot. The chestnut colt with Flavien Prat aboard paid $132.40, $56.60 and $24.60. The $132.40 to win was the second-highest payout in Derby history. Maximum Security crossed the finish line first in the race by 1¾ lengths with a time of 2:03.93 over 1¼ miles. But both the margin and time were wiped out by his disqualification.
