Thunder Snow's Derby Rodeo

He was my long shot or surprise pick, with a very good chance.

If you haven't seen the video -- you must. It's a hoot.

Thunder Snow will be more famous than the winner.

From a twitter feed, yes, but same short video all news articles use:

Some highlights of his career:

Wow, look at this pic:

If saddle did slip that badly... accounts for a lot.
But I don't think so, as a rider, looking at the rest of the video. I think the jockey tipped over.

His history and pedigree is on Wikipedia.
"In the official European Classification of two-year-olds for 2016 Thunder Snow was given a rating of 118, making him the best two-year-old trained in Britain and the third-best juvenile in Europe"

He won the UAE Derby in a photo finish. Colt's got heart.

WOW, they have trackside cameras, on a track! Race film like I've never seen. US tracks need this.
But US has better announcers.

Track may have been wet, but is obviously constructed and filled differently than Churchill Downs!

I didn't realize the race in France was on turf. He won there also.
