UPDATE: MINE THAT BIRD, a 50-1 horse, WINS THE KENTUCKY DERBY
Race Replay Video Below
The race for the elusive Triple Crown starts with the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 2, 2009 at the (Churchill Downs) Louiseville, Kentucky with the best 3 year old thoroughbred horses from around the US competing. The race will be broadcasted live by NBC in the US (time and schedule to follow) and shown around the world through live streaming video by NBC. The free live streaming video of the 135th Kentucky Derby may also be available through video streams by users of justin.tv and ustream.tv. Be sure to check them out.
My prediction for the winner is based on which ones were picked high by bettors, and then choose the name of the horse I liked the most. Pioneer of the Nile stood out and gave me the impression it’s going to be the first horse to cross the finish line. Here are the field or list of horses that will be joining the Derby and their betting odds (from wiki). You have to visit the official website of Kentucky Derby 135 to know how to bet.

The Kenutcky Derby 2009, also called the Most Exciting 2 Minutes in Sports, is the first of three races comprising the Triple Crown. The Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes 2009 will immediately follow this race, and the hope of every thoroughbred racer is to finish first in all three. The last time this happened was in 1978, and hopefully, the Triple Crown will belong to a horse this year.
Stay tuned for the results. Replay will be available on Youtube minutes after the race.
