No privacy for Kentucky Derby winner

October 8, 2009 |  5:32 pm

Since the folks at the Oak Tree meeting installed a 24-hour webcam showing Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird in his stall with streaming live video from Santa Anita on Wednesday, there have been more than 14,000 hits on the link, according to track spokesman Mike Willman.

It's proving so popular to watch Mine That Bird eat, sleep and just stand in his stall that perhaps a webcam could be put in the barn of the unbeaten 5-year-old mare Zenyatta, right?

"We'd ask you to respect her privacy," Willman said.
