TwinSpires will refund some win bets on Maximum Security after controversial Kentucky Derby

TwinSpires.com, an online wagering service for Churchill Downs and its group of racetracks, will refund up to $10 of win bets put down on Maximum Security in the 2019 Kentucky Derby.

Maximum Security won the race but was later disqualified for interference in the final turn. Country House, a 65-to-1 long shot, was declared the winner, amid an outcry from some bettors and others in the horse racing community.

TwinSpires.com made the announcement with a pair of posts on Twitter in the hour after the race.

The news should come as some relief for bettors who put money down on Maximum Security to win. However, those who bet the colt in exactas, trifectas, Pick Three bets and other wagers likely aren't celebrating.
