    The biggest horse race in the world was this weekend and a 20-1 shot won it with a substitute jockey, Animal Kingdom won it with John Velazquez on the mount. Record setting attendance figures for this race too, and it was a good race. I found this interview with the winning jockey Velazquez which is pretty interesting:

    It's a cool sport, like tennis it's become difficult for one star to sweep the triple crown just like it's so hard to win all the slams in one year. And the horses are phenomenally conditioned athletes, just like tennis players.
