Dennis Hopper, Kentucky Derby 2002
"In 2002, I took my wife to the Kentucky Derby for our anniversary. It was May 4th. Obviously, people knew who I was, and we had great seats. Dennis Hopper was sitting behind us. Now, I'm not a betting man, but I looked through the things and I saw a horse called War Emblem. We were right in the middle of the Afghanistan war, and I thought, 'War Emblem, fuck, I'll put a hundred dollars on that . . . ' Well, the bloody thing won! I won about $2000 for a hundred-dollar bet. Dennis played the same horse. And that's the moment he realized that he won."
