Rich Strike

I know everyone has probably seen this by now, but if you haven't.

The horse that won the Kentucky Derby wasn't even good enough to be in the race. He/she got bumped up when another horse scatched and made an opening. Rich Strike got the worst starting position and was the long shot at 80 to 1 odds.

If you had a $1 trifecta ticket with Rich Strike, you won't about $15,000. Just watch this closing speed and the jockey's ability to navigate the traffic.

Honestly, it makes you wonder how many great horses never made the cut that determines who gets into the race. There could have been horses better than Secretariat that didn't have owners with the connections to get them into the race.
