A Special Bond

A favorite to win the race, Krigger will ride Goldencents (he is the first to ride the thoroughbred horse at the derby). They have trained together since last August and he says the two share a special bond. "It is like I am the human version of him and he's the horse version of me. We look forward to seeing each other every day," Krigger told BET.com in a phone interview Tuesday.
