The winner was 80-1 longest price in the race. Rich Strike was not even entered until one horse was a late scratch. The horse was claimed for 30.000 awhile back, now worth a lot more....

R.S. jockey is Venezuelan which means some of his ancestors may have migrated to D.R. centuries ago. Could it be a Dominican victory by association, or is that a longer shot than 80-1? The last 30 seconds of that race was epic. And I never say "epic".
