Kerry Thomas, author of HORSE PROFILING, said “I expect big things” from today’s Derby winner I’ll Have Another.

Today, the horse who was bought for a song and ridden by a rookie jockey shocked the crowds at Churchill Downs to overtake the highly regarded favorite to win.

As can happen with the most exciting two minutes in sports, the Kentucky Derby delivered an intense episode in speed and grit. And what was it that helped launch one incredible young equine athlete forward and past another? What was it about I’ll Have Another that made him dig in and pull past Bodemeister as they neared the finish?

In the April 29th article in Kentucky Confidential, Kerry Thomas, author of the just released HORSE PROFILING: THE SECRET TO MOTIVATING EQUINE ATHLETES from Trafalgar Square Books, profiled the 2012 Kentucky Derby contenders. About today’s winner, “I’ll Have Another,” Kerry said:

“[He has] a nearly perfect emotional conformation profile…I’m impressed…I look for big things in this horse.”
