ALEXANDRIA, VA–Paperwork filed with the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission suggests a horse of a different stripe might take all the roses this year in Louisville.

Named ‘Kalahari,” the colt has been clocking record times in a clandestine training facility, located outside of Middleburg, VA.

The rules for the famous two-year old race, called the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” do not preclude hybrid and genetically altered species from taking a shot at the coveted loving cup.

And if you you came this far in the little story, we can’t believe we GOT YOU!
