Giacomos shocking win earned him a spot in The Greatest Kentucky Derby Upsets, which explores the tales of some of the Derbys most improbable victors. In 1904 Elwood became the first starter owned by a woman, one Laska Durnell, who failed to tell her trainer husband she had even nominated the colt. In between Elwoods winning and Giacomos, Donerail returned a record price that still stands, Sir Barton made the Derby his first victory, Dark Star defeated the seemingly invincible Native Dancer, Iron Liege capitalized on a rival jockeys miscue, Canonero II went from laughing stock to hero, and Genuine Risk won one for the girls.
