Rosie Napravnik and Shanghai Bobby are a close morning line second to Itsmyluckyday in Saturday's Florida Derby. The media is going to be all over this girl-jockey story if they make it to the KY Derby.
Rare picture of Holy Bull and Cigar from the Feb. This was the race in which Holy Bull was hurt and was then retired. Cigar went on to fame and fortune, and a 16 race win streak. Holy Bull is my all time favorite race horse :)
