As voted upon by me....here are my Top 3 favorite Derby races throughout history:
(2009) Mine That Bird at 50-1 odds
The 135th running of the Kentucky Derby. Mine That Bird Amazing Finish, dead last to first.
(1957) Iron Liege wins when Gallant Man's jockey celebrates too soon
Iron Leige wins the 1957 Kentucky Derby.
(1933) Brokers Tip wins it's only race in the horse's history in perhaps the craziest race ever. Head Play was permitted to start outside the gate because it wouldn't load, then the jockeys from Head Play and Brokers Tip literally fight each other from aboard their horses down the stretch!
Horses parade to post. Fans making wagers on race. They're Off. Race in progress. Crowds. Broker's Tip #16 noses out Head Play #9 in stretch. The Winner's Circle.
