Kent Desormeaux Likes Big Butts (For a Good Cause)

Raising funds for the Permanently DIsabled Jockey Fund, Kent Desormeuax traded his tack for “Baby Got Back”. Other jockeys taking the karaoke stage were Joe Talamo (”Play That Funky Music”), Mike Luzzi & Phil Teator in Kiss makeup (”I Wanna Rock And Roll All Night”), Gary Stevens (”Born To Be Wild”), Mike Smith (”Tennessee Whiskey”), and many more.

You can help disabled jockeys in need right now by contributing to the PDJF today.

The complete show is right below…

The PDJF provides financial assistance to 60 former jockeys who have suffered
catastrophic on-track injuries. Since its founding in 2006, the fund has
disbursed nearly $9 million dollars to permanently disabled jockeys,
most of whom have sustained paralysis or brain injuries.

Many of the jockeys we serve were injured while in their 20s and 30s
and face decades of living with a disability. They have lost their
income and the opportunity to build a financial cushion sufficient to
support them and their families.

The medical needs of disabled jockeys are great and may include
daily assistance from a caregiver.

The PDJF strives to reach out to everyone in the Thoroughbred and
Quarter Horse industries, their business partners and the great fans of
this sport for their support.

With your help the PDJF may continue to
assist these permanently disabled jockeys with their day-to-day needs.

Thank you for your donations to the PDJF.

Undefeated Justify is the 13th Triple Crown Winner!

Only the second undefeated Triple Crown victor in history, Justify helps Bob Baffert also become only the second trainer to win the Triple Crown twice. Mike Smith was the winning jockey, and it was his third winning ride in the Belmont Stakes.

European invader Gronkowski was second. Hofburg was third. Vino Rosso was fourth.

Beginning his career in February Justify went on to become the first horse since Apollo in 1882 to win the Kentucky Derby without having raced at two. It was the rainiest Kentucky Derby on record. He won a muddy and foggy Preakness Stakes at Pimlico, and now on a Sunny day at Belmont Park – after six straight winning races – Justify can finally take some time off after taking home the Triple Crown.
