What a remarkable rags to riches story: the offspring of an $8k mare and $2.5k stallion from humble beginnings in a Central California one horse stable owned by working class parnters again victorious against top bred horses and elite trainers. It's like someone from a trailer park winning America's Cup. Just inspirational... He and his jockey Victor Espinoza, now a 2X Kentucky Derby winner, and Art Sherman, its 77yr oldest trainer to win the KD. ..with a legitimate shot at the elusive Triple Crown. This is a "people horse" also and very easy to root for.
