The commission’s letter to attorney D. Barry Stilz, who filed the appeal of behalf of owners Gary and Mary West, also denied a request of a stay of the disqualification ruling pending appeal because the law does not provide for an appeal.

Maximum Security is the first Derby winner disqualified for interference in the race’s 145-year history.
