A federal lawsuit against the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission was filed Tuesday by the owners of Maximum Security over what they call the “bizarre and unconstitutional” disqualification from the Kentucky Derby.

The owners are also seeking $3 million in Derby winnings to be re-allocated to themselves, as well as Maximum Security’s trainer, John Servis, and jockey Luis Saez.

Stewards suspended Saez Monday for 15 days, saying the jockey failed to control Maximum Security and caused interference in the race.
