134th Kentucky Derby

If, like me, you missed the Derby today, here’s “the most exciting two minutes in sports” as they say. Favourite Big Brown won easily and second place Eight Belles, the only filly in the race, collapsed after breaking her front ankles. She was euthanized on the racetrack. It’s reputed that Eight Belles was Hillary Clinton’s pick in the race. Whether Obama was betting on Big Brown is unconfirmed.

More racing excitement here.
