Dr. McGraw's expertise extends beyond southern culture and sensibilities. She is an expert equestrian. Her recent book, Greatest Kentucky Derby Upsets, came off the press in 2007 and is now begging for an update thanks to this year's long-shot, Mine That Bird (50-1). In an email chat, I asked McGraw if she saw that coming:
I definitely did not see that long shot coming. I was pulling for Pioneer of the Nile, because I am a Bob Baffert fan and believe he is due for a comeback. (But the last time I picked a Derby winner was Silver Charm, so I don't have a very good record as a handicapper.)
