by | May 5, 2016 | Audio, Breaking, Racing, Regionwide, Top Stories, Triple Crown Trail

They call the Kentucky Derby the most exciting two minutes in sports, and for many racing fans, it’s certainly among the most memorable. In this week’s series of short Derby Moments podcasts, we’ll visit with several racing folks for their fondest Kentucky Derby memories. We’ll meet:

  • someone who cashed big when a horse narrowly avoided a serious fall;
  • someone who tells you what it was like to be on the roof of the grandstand when Mine That Bird won the Derby at 50-1 odds;
  • someone who parlayed his Kentucky Derby winnings into, of all things, a new dog;
  • and more!

In this episode: Teresa Genaro, correspondent for The Racing Biz (and many other horse racing publications, recounts the first Derby she attended — when Animal Kingdom won — and the second, when she had the unenviable task of interviewing the losing connections after the big race.
