(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN Sports Steve Overmyer† and attorney Rob Becker† about the investigation of Kentucky Derby winner Funny Cide after the “Miami Herald” published a picture of something other than the riding crop in the jockey’s hand; video shown of the finish. [OVERMYER – says it looks like a photography trick; comments on the suspension of a jockey in the Arkansas Derby in 1999 for using an electronic device to spur on his horse.] [BECKER – speculates on what the object could be; says battery-operated devices are banned; comments on the implications for people who bet on the race if the outcome is changed.]

Cooper, Anderson
