Absolutely, it's always a roughly run race, but the leader doesn't always blatantly veer out causing the horses behind him to check or go down to a knee. Just go back and watch what happens to the 1 and the 18, and it totally took them out of contention.. Doesn't mean either would have won, but the actions of the #7 eliminated them from having a chance. Like I've been saying, it sucks, but it really was a no brainer.
The call once the objection was made may have been a no-brainer. I have an issue with the objection being made in the first place. I just question whether it's an appropriate action to take in that context. Easy for me to say when I don't have a chance to win the Kentucky Derby on the line. But then again no one actually believes that Country House won the race. Which is a shame because 2nd was still an awesome finish for a horse with his odds.
