Racing fans attend 145th running of Kentucky Derby

Maximum Security won the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, beating out the competition despite a muddy track at Churchill Downs. Rain poured for nearly an hour before post time, forcing officials to downgrade the track condition to sloppy for the third year in a row.

There is an objection on the field and officials are reviewing a light touch between Maximum Security and Country House. Jockeys are briefing while judges are watching replays of the race. Official results and payouts will be determined once the objection review is complete.

This year's race was tinged with drama as the favorite, Omaha Beach, was pulled out of the race days ago.
