I remain somewhat amused by all of the hoopla surrounding the Kentucky Derby – it builds for a couple of months, and is crazy for a couple of weeks. Nonetheless, I think the race really lives up to its moniker of being the “most exciting two minutes in sports.” There’s hardly anything like it. Today’s race was particularly good, with a full field and a bunch of underdogs beating the big guys. Great to see Steinbrenner lose, and while my namesake horse (Afleet Alex) didn’t win, he was close and finished in the money. The winner ran on 50-1 odds, the second place horse was 71-1. If you saw that coming, you could have made a TON of cash.
