A funny controversey has happend at the Kentucky derby a week later. It seems that the winner's jockey may have held something illegal in his hand. But what? Look how his hand is shaped in this picture. He's holding the whip between his thumb and index finger which may be normal for all I know, but why doesn't it slip out. Also the spread of his first two fingers suggests that something is in his hand. And it seems that the stable has already changed the story at least once about what that object could be. The rules seem to be that you can't have electronic devices and I doubt the photo can prove any wrongdoing. That said, the article makes me suspicious. I don't see myself betting on Funny Cide to win the Preakness.
