Rise and shine, it's go-for-the-Triple-Crown-on-two-different-horses time! At least, it will be in a few hours.
The star of the race won't be Mine That Bird — despite his transforming into a diva over night, evidenced by this snapshot — but his jockey, Calvin Borel, who's riding for the first Triple Crown since 1979. And that's why you should root for the 5-foot-4, 116-pound Cajun. He's the story here, people, not the damn horse he's riding. Remember?
Good Saturday morning. Keep the tips coming nice and steady today and we just might get through the first part of the weekend.
