Sportsman of the Week Ending 5/6/2012

An amazing sports week concludes, this week I have to lean toward someone who made history in his first opportunity.  With honorable mention to Jered Weaver, this week's sportsman of the week is Mario Gutierrez.  A brilliant Derby ride stalking in 7th or forward the entire race, a little wide on the last turn, but I'll Have Another had plenty of juice to overtake Bodemeister down the stretch. Extra credit for being the first jockey to win from the 19th position.  I believe Mario to be a serious budding star of the tracks for years to come, you are the Longhorndave on Sports sportsman of the Week!
