Lucky 16

Animal Kingdom’s number was Orb’s numer this year – lucky 16!  I think the whole of America must salute Hall Of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey’s win today as it was a very popular win.  He is a veteran trainer who has never won the Derby even though he has had major horses in the past, i.e. Easy Goer who was beaten by Sunday Silence in the 1989 Derby.  Also the owners, the Phipps and Janney family’s have had many many Grade I Stakes winners but never a Derby winner.  Congratulations to them all.  You are very well deserved.
