Kentucky Derby Watch the Bird!
Wins at 50-1
1. Mine That Bird (Calvin Borel) W: 103.20 P: 54.00 S: 25.80

Watch the Bird! Long shot Mine That Bird stuns field to win Kentucky Derby at 50-1 odds

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) The cowboy and his horse beat them all. Four Hall of Fame trainers. The ruler of Dubai. Two very sentimental favorites. Trainer Bennie Woolley Jr. hitched Mine That Bird to the back of his pickup and drove to the Kentucky Derby from New Mexico. With an inspired ride on the rail from Calvin Borel, it all added up to one of the greatest upsets in 135 years of America's most famous horse race.

I bet Mine that Bird!!! I got 47:1 at Intertops plus I had him to show:D

Bet him because the word "Bird" is in the name and I am a twitter addict..
Had the other horse with "Bird" in the name too and he almost placed too :eek:

This really made up for last year's devastation.. I almost did not watch this year because I had the filly last year.. she broke my heart and lost her life but still got the cash.... :(


^^^^^^
"Flight to the Kentucky Derby: $300
Bets and drinks at the Derby: $500

Watching all the Kentucky Blue Blood snobs choke on
their mint julips when the $9,500 red neck horse wins:
PRICELESS
"
^^^^^^
"No Luck Needed for the $9,500 Horse that just spanked
the Million dollar big boys! 'It's all in the Head' the jockey says"

^^^^^^
"It just shows what can be done.
Dream a little bit & your dreams will come true"

I went to the Mohegan Sun Casino to watch it.
I bet on the Bird in the Win,Place & Show because I have birds and I always bet on names I have around the house.(I have 3 birds)
It was a great day Yahoo.
I had a guy next to me that even showed me his ticket and won $50.000.00 on the race.he had $1500.00 riding on it too.
I wanted to jump him :lolup:
