Betting the longshot and winning at the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve is exhilarating! Especially this year if you bet on the winner Rich Strike (Keen Ice – Gold Strike, by Smart Strike) at odds of 80-1. Indiana horseman William Austin Nicks, 27, hit the trifecta and turned a $24 bet into $14,800! That would make any person happy.

For the past 20 years, Blue has been a pony at Pimlico Race Course. He is quite a contrast to the sleek Thoroughbreds. He is highly visible with his dynamic black and white coat and his startling “Paul Newman” blue eyes. He has a huge head that sometimes looks like it belongs on a different horse. His pink, leathery lips are loose, and his mouth always seems to be open. He can be a challenge to photograph because from some viewpoints, he is somewhat dinosaur-like. Yet he has a certain cache about him.
