KENTUCKY DERBY BLACK GOLD

Black Gold is lead to the winner's circle after capturing the 50th Kentucky at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., on May 17, 1924. The Kentucky Derby had barely begun when it nearly ended for Black Gold. He was bumped by another colt and almost went to his knees, bringing hearts up into many throats. After all, despite soundness problems, Black Gold had gone to the post as the $1.75 favorite to win the 50th Derby. (AP Photo)
