I thought #2 Alequash Hotspur came off the rail clean and with plenty of clearance.  I don't think he should have been disqualified. Am I wrong ?

Me too. Nice win play. Thats why I was asking. The horse they said was impeded was doing the exorcist with his head way before the #2 attempted to move.

Didn't think the #2 interfered until I watched the replays . Very clear on one of the angles.

I wonder if oo was driving the 2 and Timmy c was driving the 10 if the outcome would have been different. Also I have seen much worse stay up in Chicago. Zero consistency

Bowserkat's explanation seems to jive with what I witnessed.  Mike's horse was the one that went back to the paddock shortly before the start of the race and he did look locked up a bit from the word go.  I'm not sure I would have DQ'd him unless I was invoking a general safety standard and required all moves to have more clearance, but then I would be tossing lots of people and John Roberts would never drive.
