That’s one mighty fast horse!

Street Sense won the Derby in style. He hung back in 19th place (out of 20 horses) for most of the race. About 3/4 miles before the end, jockey Borel switched to a new gear and stepped on the gas. He passed all but the last two horses by riding on the rail – all the other horses (and it was horses, not jockeys) just moved away from him as he passed them one by one. That was so fast, all the other horses looked like Clydesdales in comparison. Not wanting to gamble any more, Borel decided to pass the last two on the outside and won so easily he started celebrating a hundred yards before the finish line! Awesome race!
