The Kentucky Derby

Yesterday was the 135th Kentucky Derby.  

Mine that Bird was the winning horse.  This horse's odds were 51-1.  Can you even imagine being one of those lucky bidders?!?  The SuperFecta ticket would have paid $557, 000.  

I would have loved to been on top of my game and bid.  Calvin Borel is the jockey who rode Mine that Bird to victory....Borel also rode Street Sense to a win in the Derby last year.  I remember seeing a story about him on ESPN last year and really enjoying his personality.    Maybe I should just bid on him when he's riding.

Happy Bidding next year!
