For all the little folks in our sport:

We saw it Saturday or you can watch various reruns.

Winning $2 ticket paid $163.60.
$2 Exacta paid $4,101.20
$1 Trifecta paid $14,870.70
$1 Superfecta paid $321,500.10

Horse was bought in a claiming race for $30,000. Calumet Farms had given up on him though he was a closer.
Calumet Farms has not had a Derby winner in decades. If you follow horses he has Curlin in his pedigree.
Owner had never had a horse in the Derby & only got in because the horse was there & another horse scratched.
Jockey had never ridden in a Grade 1 stake.
Trainer had never had a Derby horse. His circuit was a 3 state area around W VA.
His crew will probably not have to sleep on hay bales any more. Though when you are young it's not that bad.

Never give up. Recognize, appreciate & build on the good points of your animal

I actually came here to post something similar! What a fun race. Loved it. Hope for the underdog.

The real question is…who is gonna name their next dog Rich Strike? Lol.
I was waiting for someone else to post it.

Best shot of the race I have seen -

The shot I'm trying to show is an overhead that my son sent me.

Ed, thank you. I actually was in NAVHDA in the early 70s with GSPs. I was just yanking MG's chain.I knew Bodo Winterhelt fairly well. I went to the dark side around 1984 with a BLF out of Cody and a Thunder daughter.
