The Champion - Running the Rails

The race, 148th running at Churchill Downs

The odds, 80/1 chance for Rich Strike to win

Your gain, if you had gambled 2 bucks on Strike you would have won $163.60

The entry, a three year old stallion colt

The miracle, Rich Strike received a last minute chance to enter the Derby when Ethereal Road was scratched

The cost, most expensive horses in this year’s Derby race:

  1. KING FURY ($950,000)

  2. DYNAMIC ONE ($725,000) ...

  3. ROCK YOUR WORLD ($650,000) ...

  4. MIDNIGHT BOURBON ($525,000) …

Rich Strike cost the owner ($30,000)

The comeback, Strike was in 18th place among 20 horses at the halfway marker

The plan, the closer to the rail, the shorter the distance to run

The purse, Rich Strike won 2.86 million dollars

The MOTTO, never, ever, ever, give up, give in, give out or give way…NEVER!

The timing, a nation desperately needing a win….of some kind.
