Thanks to The Week magazine, I know can pretend I know something about the horses running in the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, including introducing me to Mucho Macho Man, a horse that has a story ready made for a Disney movie:

Mucho Macho Man (or 3M) is a horse with a story to tell. He was considered dead at birth and did not move for ten minutes before springing to life. His trainer, Kathy Ritvo, received a heart transplant in 2008 and is a rare female trainer in the famous Kentucky Derby. In the race’s 136 runnings, only 14 female trainers have had horses in the Derby, and no woman has ever had a winner.
