New Mexico native and Mike Smith, will be racing in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. Smith helped led Justify to win the Triple Crown last year.
This year, he was set to race with the Kentucky Derby favorite, Omaha Beach, but the horse was pulled from the race due to a respiratory illness. Friday, it was announced that Smith will now be riding Cutting Humor.
Cutting Humor was listed as a 30-1 longshot on the morning odds, though the horse may see more money come in with Smith aboard.
