LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky Derby winner Country House is out of the Preakness Stakes, according to a report.
Mott told Jay Privman the horse "developed a little bit of a cough." He is hopeful the illness isn't anything serious.
The horse is likely to miss out on training, which will prevent a run for the Triple Crown.
Country House, a 65-1 underdog, won after Maximum Security was disqualified in the Kentucky Derby.
This is the first time the Kentucky Derby winner won't appear in the Preakness Stakes since Grindstone in 1996.
