Bob Baffert’s 10-year-old son, Bode, wasn’t alive to see any of his father’s horses win a Kentucky Derby the first three times. Saturday, he finally got to witness a victory and went crazy.
The end of the Kentucky Derby was thrilling as American Pharoah pulled ahead for the victory, just edging out Dortmund and others.
It was a big win for everyone, including jockey Victor Espinoza who has now won back-to-back wins as a jockey.
It was also the fourth win for trainer Bob Baffert.
It was an even more special win for his 10-year-old son Bode, who had never seen his dad’s horses win the derby before.
As you can expect, his son’s reaction was full of joy as he lost his mind celebrating the biggest win of his dad’s life.
Bode hopped up and down shaking his fist like Steve Ballmer after the Clippers make a free throw.
It was a thrilling end that saw three horses neck-and-neck for the chance at being the winner of the Kentucky Derby.
With such an emotional victory, Bode, along with everyone else in the stands, were full of tears and joy to see American Pharoah, the favorite to win, pull off the feat of winning the derby and joining the long list of great horses that have won before.
Go crazy Bode, go crazy.
