This week’s 56-page Sports Insider includes a look at the amazing turn in this year’s Kentucky Derby. Rich Strike, an 80-1 long shot that wasn’t even going to be in the Kentucky Derby until another horse was scratched Friday, pulled off one of the biggest upsets in horse racing history. We’ve got the full story plus a package of photos showing what an unusual and entertaining event the Derby is.

Our weekly sports magazine brings you the best coverage of live events, plus in-depth storytelling that goes beyond the scores. To read this week’s Sports Insider, go to ajc.com/sportsinsider
