Dismissed by many observers at odds of , Majesticality ran a 75 beyer to post a colossal upset, winning BC's richest, most prestigious race! My sister found this guy intriguing, so I used him and the 2nd place horse, Crew Leader, as exacta key horses in "saver bets", to win a $1890 exacta payoff. Now a champion, he's bred in BC, & owned by Mr. & Mrs RJ Bennett, trained by Barb Heads, & was ridden by hot rider Richard Hamel. Majesticality had sneaky good form - having bad 'trips' in his prior recent races, while still closing ground & not being used much. Apparently he had a terrible beginning in this race, too, but overcame it on a wet track he clearly relished. Unforgettable!

I have been following and photographing the undefeated champion mare as she prepares for a bid to tie Citation and Cigar's unbeaten 16 win streak. I am an artist and aspiring fiction and turf writer.

When one researches the VERY FIRST Kentucky Derby, one will find that 13 of the 15 jockeys in the race were BLACK! Furthermore, of the first 28 Derby winners, 15 of them were black men. Going back to that first KENTUCKY DERBY, held on May 17, 1875, the winner was a 19 year-old black native of Kentucky named Oliver Lewis. It was reported that mobs of white spectators cheered for Lewis as he rode his horse, ARISTIDES to a record setting victory. In 1877, a 17 year-old black young man by the name of William Walker won the prestigious race at Churchill Downs. Quite frankly, blacks dominated the sport of horse racing in the early years. An African-American by the name Isaac Murphy was the first jockey to win 3 KENTUCKY DERBYS in 1884, 1890, and 1891. In fact, he won an unprecedented 44% of all of his races. (Thats unheard of!) Many black jockeys were introduced to horse racing at a young age partly because their light weight virtually made the horse feel that it wasnt carrying a load. So it is of no surprise that the black jockey named James Soup Perkins, who won the Derby in 1895, began racing at age 11. The youngest black jockey to ever win at Churchill Downs was Alonzo Lonnie Clayton who rode to victory at age 15 in 1892. By the year 1921, racism and bigotry in America eventually drove the black jockeys out of the sport. White racing fans that grew increasingly in frustration at the vast number of black Derby winners, began to voice their disapproval of their involvement by ...

Barbaro charged ahead during the last turn and straightaway of the 2006 Kentucky Derby to win by six and a half lengths. Barbaro's lead in the final furlong expanded, although jockey Edgar Prado did not use the whip and ask for his top speed. This margin of victory at the 132 Kentucky Derby was the largest since 1946.
