From "Wolf picks Derby winner" by Michael Becker at the Press-Enterprise blog:
For those thinking, "Who in the world picked 50-1 long-shot Mine That Bird to win the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby?" here's one: Dodgers starting pitcher Randy Wolf.
Wolf took home a considerable pot in the team's Derby pool when Mine That Bird crossed the finish line at Churchill Downs on Saturday afternoon. But he wasn't without help. Outfielder Matt Kemp actually suggested the horse to Wolf.
"It's going to be a good day for you," Kemp told Wolf after Mine That Bird crossed the wire.
Kemp with another assist! And what contest did Castro win to be able to ride that cardboard horse?
