The 2009 Kentucky Derby

I’m not into horse racing, and it was only coincidental that I knew the Kentucky Derby was last weekend.

However, I was tipped off that the race had an exciting finish.

Check out the coverage on YouTube of the 2009 Kentucky Derby where “Mind That Bird” came from 14th place on the final turn to win by six or seven lengths.

Although the ending of the race was both exciting and a huge upset, there is a dark side of horse racing that is largely hidden from the public.  If you have any doubts, just check out what PETA has to say on the matter.  The reports of how these horses are treated are both tragic and discussing.

I guess that’s why I don’t make a point of following the “sport.”
