50-1 Mine That Bird ... wow, someone just made an ess-load of money off that.
That was an incredible run that horse made. He came out of nowhere to win. 50-1 odds, yes, someone got rich.
That jockey had riden the winner in the race the day before and literally smoked the field, won by 25+ lengths and was pulling away.

Maybe with his winnings he can now buy hisself some teefuses, like these ->:D

The sad part is that horse is a gelding, no stud fees in the future:(
