Calvin blew it!

He knew and had ridden both horses. Only one had the chance at the triple crown--Mine that Bird, the 50-1 winner of the Derby. The little gelding that sold for $9,000. Now, he and Rachel Alexandra did win the Preakness, and Mine that Bird came from last to place second. With Calvin Borel, who is fearless and can find those holes where none exist, I think he would have been first by a number of lengths. But that's just me. A sucker for a good horse story.
