The Story of Dancer's Image Disqualification in the 1968 Kentucky Derby

The biggest controversy in Kentucky Derby history before this year may have been the 1968 Kentucky Derby. Dancer's Image won the race, but was later disqualified for having traces of phenylbutazone, which was illegal at the time. HRTV dove deep into the legendary story of Dancer's Image. Fifty-one years later the winner of the 2019 Kentucky Derby, Maximum Security, became only the second winner to be disqualified, but this time it was for a much different reason.
