2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird returns to Sunland Park

News

Mine That Bird, the horse that won the 2009 Kentucky Derby despite 50/1 odds, returned to Sunland Park Race Track on Saturday afternoon.

The horse led the post parade for the Sunland Park Handicap. He and trainer Chip Woolley were on hand for the event. 

Until Saturday’s win by Country House in the 145th Kentucky Derby at 65/1 odds, Mine That Bird held the record for longest odds of any Derby winner. His legacy in horse racing is still strong. 

“He’s still well-received everywhere he goes,” Woolley said. “He was the only horse in about an 11-year period that lit the board in all three Triple Crown races. He was a really good tough horse and laid it on the line every time.”
