FROM LAST TO FIRST. The field starts the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby on May 2, 2009 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

The winner, Mine That Bird, in the #8 hole (black silks with white triangle) gets pinched between the the #7 horse Papa Clem and the #9 Join in the Dance.

Jockey Calvin Borel took his horse back and trailed the field the first time under the finish line.

Here Borel and Mine That Bird, round turn one in last place.
