One Horse Was Not Interested In Running On A Sloppy Kentucky Derby Track

Always Dreaming won the 143rd running the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, but one unruly horse stole America’s hearts. And no, it wasn’t Tom Brady.

Thunder Snow had no interest in running a horse race on Saturday, bucking and prancing his way to a last place finish in the Derby and a first place finish in my anarchic horse power rankings.

Thunder Snow had won the Dubai World Cup in March and many had high hopes for its chances in the Derby, but a sloppy course was clearly unfamiliar for a horse trained in the desert and he seemed not to be a big fan of rain or the chains of human servitude.

Thunder Snow had 20-1 morning line odds and 16-1 odds at post time to win from the second position, so its disappointing performance on Saturday caused plenty of people to tear up their tickets and curse the weather and their bad luck.
