A sloppy track, a weak field, however you want to make excuses about the big guys, the fact is that a little horse from New Mexico won the Kentucky Derby. Mine That Bird's major upset is inspirational to some and devastating to others. He traveled to Churchill Downs in a van from New Mexico. Saturday, after what is probably America’s most famous race, the Kentucky Derby, with 153,563 people present, Mine That Bird stood in the winner’s circle, adorned by a blanket of roses. His odds in the betting pool were 50-1, making him the second longest shot in the race’s history, behind only a horse named Donerail who won at 91-1 in 1913. Will Mine That Bird run in the Preakness?
