The Kentucky Derby’s best-dressed man also happened to be on the winning side of Mystik Dan’s photo finish


The 150th Kentucky Derby would become iconic, if only for the fact that the Run for the Roses is halfway through its bicentennial, and the fact that Travis Kelce was there wearing a hat and suit combo that would make Nathan Detroit proud. .

But was Taylor Swift’s other half the best dressed man at Churchill Downs? Absolutely not.

A man whose name I unfortunately don’t know, and who I can’t find on Twitter despite my best efforts, stole the show and some of the thunder from Mystik Dan’s thrilling victory by a nose over Sierra Leone and Forever Jong.

Had to show the correct breed before this guy’s reveal. You wouldn’t be immediately prepared for the fall. Even before the race, people were wondering who the hell this guy was.

Again, man is a mystery and I mean no disrespect if he’s part of the training squad or anything. All I know is that he stood right next to Mystik Dan trainer Kenny McPeek for his interviews afterward. Poor Go Long NFL writer Tyler Dunne – news breaker from Sean McDermott’s speech on September 11 – shouted his chance that Mystik Dan would emerge victorious through the power of sheer proximity to Mr. Stars and Stripes. I just couldn’t pull the trigger in time for the winning bet slip.

It’s painfully clear that Captain America – is that nickname also on the nose? Will workshop as I go here – was fiercely committed to the Mystik Dan cause. The man’s face was straight up burned by the sun.

The key takeaways from the Kentucky Derby and from this article are as follows. You can’t tell me that Mr. Stars and Stripes – more accurately that – is not personally responsible for the extra mojo Mystik Dan needed to beat the competition to the finish line. You also can’t convince me that the power of his charisma and the power of his overall charisma haven’t led to such epic breakthroughs for McPeek and veteran jockey Brian Hernandez.

You don’t even have to look at Mystik Dan’s family tree. It’s not relevant. Mr. Stars and Stripes was and is the X factor. Do you really want to bet against Mystik Dan in the Preakness with all of this as context? Be my guest. I know who I’m following at the next Triple Crown race – and it’s not because I’m hoping Mystik Dan will achieve horse racing’s most coveted trifecta of wins. It’s because Mr. Stars and Stripes will not be denied.

Pledge your allegiance to Mr. Stars and Stripes. He is an instant legend. I’m all for the awesome Kentucky Derby hats and all, but that red, white and blue attire is several levels beyond what America can handle.
