Rove Lost To Special Interest On Election Day

No, not Karl Rove....

WSJ:

Race-track loving politicos have taken note that a horse named Rove also lost big on Election Day—but at Churchill Downs, not Washington.

The four-year-old colt—no relation to Bush political adviser Karl Rove—went off 9th in the 2nd race at the famous Kentucky track on Tuesday, and finished dead last. “Rove was always outrun,” said the track’s own synopsis of the race, which occurred on a sloppy track. Unlike the human Rove, the equine version has raced six times and never won.
Provoking still more grins among the politically minded horse set is that the winner of the race was none other than a chestnut colt named…Special Interest.
