Video+Gallery+Story: ‘Cutting Humor’ Takes Sunland Derby

It may have been a pleasant Spring Sunday day, but the racing was red-hot at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino, as Cutting Humor held off Anothertwistafate to win Sunday’s 16th annual Sunland Derby.

Cutting Humor and jockey John Velazquez went neck-and-neck down the front stretch against Anothertwistafate en route to a track record of 1:46.94.

The race not only paid out $800,000, but the top four horses earned points to May’s Kentucky Derby.

Our very own Andres ‘Ace’ Acosta was there and we bring you his view of the action in this gallery.
