My top pick in last Saturday’s Kentucky Derby was Nehro, who finished second. But I was even happier to watch 23-1 longshot Animal Kingdom win the race, returning a nice $329.80 exacta. I was even more thrilled when Mucho Macho Man finished third, giving those who played the trifecta $3,952.40. Not a bad afternoon.Derby 137 at Churchill Downs in Louisville attracted the most fans ever with 164,858 people, nearly 1,100 more than the previous record set in 1974.

In the interim, Lamar President James Simmons has appointed Jason Henderson, the university’s associate athletic director for compliance, to also handle the duties of athletics director.
