Mine That Bird - 2009 Kentucky Derby + Post Race

Jockey Calvin Borel won the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) May 1 on heavy favorite Rachel Alexandra, and the following day in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), he scored a huge upset on Mine That Bird. "I did a Street Sense ride," Borel said, referring to his winning ride aboard Street Sense in the 2007 Derby. Borel is known for bringing horses up the rail and is affectionately called "Calvin Bo-Rail." In the 19-horse field, only one horse was longer odds than the 50-1 price on Mine That Bird. That was the 55-1 odds on Atomic Rain. Borel was even more demonstrative than when he won on Street Sense. He was crying, screaming, and pumping his fist in the air as he brought the son of Birdstone back to the winners circle. After he squirted through on the rail in the stretch, Mine That Bird drew off under Borel to win by 6 ¾ lengths. Pioneerof the Nile was second, Musket Man, and Papa Clem finished fourth. The final time was 2:02.66. Mine That Bird paid $103.20, $54, and $25.80. Pioneerof the Nile returned $8.40 and $6.40, and Musket Man paid $12 to show. Pioneerof the Nile beat Musket Man by a nose, while Musket Man was a head in front of Papa Clem.
