(Louisville, KY) - A panel of horse racing experts say the disqualification of Maximum Security as the winner of the Kentucky Derby was the right decision. 

They attended the monthly Louisville Forum meeting Wednesday to discuss the safety of thoroughbred racing.

The panelists included two executives with horse racing safety associations, and former jockey and current horse racing analyst Donna Barton Brothers. 

They also discussed jockey concussions, horse deaths at Santa Anita and the treatment of horses with a drug used to reduce bleeding.
