52 year old Mike Smith just won the 144th Kentucky Derby on Justify. Big Money Mike has been here before. He won the 2005 Derby with long shot Giacomo. Smith is just two years younger than the oldest jockey to win the Derby; a guy named Shoemaker, (JK) Bill Shoemaker won the 1986 Kentucky Derby, (at age 54) aboard the 18-1 outsider Ferdinand.
Trainer Bob Baffert has now won his fifth Kentucky Derby. You'd thnk he knows a bit about choosing a jockey to ride a horse. When he hired Smith to sit astride this very special horse, do you think he ever considered he might not win?
Absolutely not. When you're training for the Kentucky Derby you focus only on the win.
