Thoroughbred racing was on the lookout for a striking gray named Holy Bull to break from the gate Saturday at Churchill run away from the strongest Kentucky Derby field in a decade and not slow down until he had plucked each of the Triple Crowns gems and given the game its next it was Go for Gin that And went and went and Showers that began late Friday night and continued until just about an hour before the race pounded the dirt oval until its color and complexion resembled runny It was the kind of surface that Nick Go For Gins had spent the better part of a week praying Sometimes the best horse dont win the big Zito frac turing grammar as he had tradi tion by winning a second Derby in just three Its the best horse that And he was Go For Gins No one had to remind him Tracks have a big

first turn and trying to save some horse for a challenge that never I tried to ease him back at the eighth pole and he would have nothing to do with McCarron Nick told me he wanted him My instructions were if no one else was in a position to press Holy Bull that I was to assume that But he was running so easy I thought to myself if hes galloping like this at the head of the McCarron hes going to be hard to Impossible turned out to be more like McCarron couldnt have known that at the of And so while he piloted Go For Gin down the middle of the final straight away the safest route on an off track he went to the whip a couple of times for good measure and even dared sneak a glance at the I just looked to the inside to see if anybody was making up he I thought if anybody came Id pull my horse
