Rein Man

    African American jockeys once dominated the Kentucky Derby. But some ugly history surrounding money and white men putting black men in their place, as some like to say, changed that. The last brother to win the Derby was in 1902. Only 2 have ridden in the race since 1921 (Marlon St. Julien finished seventh aboard Curule in 2000).
    On Saturday, Kevin Krigger will ride Goldencents, 1 of the favorites to capture the race and a horse whose part-owner is Rick Pitino.
    Our good friend Evan Barnes provides a little more color commentary.

Hat(chet) Job


I never tell my old lady what to wear, but if she went out of the house with this hat I’d have to ask: “Sure you wanna wear that?”

Stroke Of Luck

    A broken nose to jockey Robby Albarado earlier in the week resulted in John Velazquez, who was scheduled to ride Uncle Mo, taking the mount on Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom, a 20-1 shot, is your Kentucky Derby winner.
