He's the heavy favorite for the 127th Kentucky Derby on Saturday, but no horse has ever won when starting from gate 17. So, is Point Given starting to feel the pressure? Page 2 goes inside the horse's head to find out.

Who says animals aren't capable of deep, emotional thoughts? Point Given understands what it's like to run your hardest while thousands of people scream at you to run harder and a little man whips you vigorously.

Use your mouse to find out what's on the mind of the Derby favorite entering Saturday's race.

"Maybe it's just me, but I've always felt that horses should be seen not heard."

"That's the scariest movie I've ever seen."

"What did Gammons mean when he said Yaz was the last to win the Triple Crown. I could swear it was Affirmed."

"I don't understand exactly what Bob Baffert meant when he said, 'Even if you lose, you'll still be the glue that holds the entire stable together.' "

"Here's the first guy I'm calling if I'm put out to stud."

"So, have you heard the one about the man who walks into a barn, and the horse says, 'Hey buddy, why the short face?' "
