This was Bob Baffert’s other horse in the race, and he was, unlike The Factor, not a favorite. I think he went off at something like 12-1.
Right after I snapped the last picture, just as I was taking another picture of Amazombie, his hall of fame jockey Mike Smith checked me out as I was checking out his horse! I was so distracted that I cut Mike out of the picture and just got Amazombie’s head! To bad, that picture would have been hilarious!

Unfortunately this was not Mr Commons day, as he was just second in the Oak Tree Mile. He looked good before the race though. Okay, maybe grey horses always look good?
