On May 4, 1968, Dancer's Image crossed the finish line at Churchill
Downs to win the 94th Kentucky Derby. Yet the jubilation ended
three days later for the owner, the jockey and the trainers who
propelled the celebrated thoroughbred to victory. Amid a firestorm
of controversy, Dancer's Image was disqualified after blood tests
revealed the presence of a widely used anti-inflammatory drug with
a dubious legal status. Over forty years later, questions still
linger over the origins of the substance and the turmoil it
created. Veteran turfwriter and noted equine law expert Milt Toby
gives the first in-depth look at the only disqualification in Derby
history and how the Run for the Roses was changed forever.
