With three days left to vote, Carryover voters are split with regards to the best moment of the Triple Crown: Mine That Bird's Derby win or Rachel Alexandra's Preakness triumph.
My vote would go to Rachel. My reasons being the electricity she garnered for the sport, the way she won it, and the circumstances surrounding her going into the race.
1. She wasn't even nominated to the TC.
2. She was blocked for a time being from getting into the starting gates by Ahmed Zayat, Mark Allen, and Marylou Whitney.
3. She was purchased by wine magnate Jess Jackson.
4. Then she goes out and wins the race.
5. She has a great ass.
Racing has a super star and it's a girl.
While Mine That Bird's win was both shocking and impressive, for once this season will be remembered for its Preakness winner and not the Derby winner.
