Sean Avery scored a huge upset victory Sunday, beating 17-1 odds in order to win the $250,000 Grade I Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap.
You probably have a lot of questions right now, including...What?
Sean Avery, a 5-year-old gelding, survived a furious rally by heavily favored Trappe Shot to win the $250,000 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap by a nose Sunday at Saratoga Race Course.
The best part of the story is reading quotes about Sean Avery the horse and imagining that they're actually about Sean Avery the not-that-great human being:
"Really, honestly, I thought Trappe Shot beat us," Bravo admitted. "I really did. At the wire he had the nose, but Sean knew he was there and stuck his head out and didn't want to let him get by. He tries so hard."
"The owners called me up in Florida and asked if I wanted Sean back," Iwinski said. "Do you have to ask that question? So they sent him to me, and he was training fabulous."
