The Kentucky Derby is called "The Run For The Roses".
"Run for the Roses"
"The roses were first established as part of the Derby celebration when they were presented to all the ladies attending a fashionable Louisville Derby party. The roses were such a sensation, that the president of Churchill Downs, Col. Lewis Clark, adopted the rose as the race's official flower. The rose garland now synonymous with the Kentucky Derby first appeared in the 1896 when the winner, Ben Brush, received a floral arrangement of white and pink roses.
In 1904 the red rose became the official flower of the Kentucky Derby. The tradition was strengthened when, in 1925, New York sports columnist Bill Corum, later the president of Churchill Downs, dubbed the Kentucky Derby the "Run for the Roses". The garland as it exists today was first introduced in 1932 for the 58th running won by Burgoo King."
The (285) Run (935) For (669) The (285) Roses (96151) = 98325 = 1311 X 75 = 23 “I Am” X 4275
1311 was the address on Chicago Avenue of the apartment building in Evanston, Illinois where my mother and father first lived after they got married on June 28, 1951. My mother was born and raised in Montana which became the 41st state to enter the union on November 8, 1889. November 8th was the Divine Conception Day of our Lord God Jesus Christ's virgin birth in the womb of the most Blessed Virgin Mary in 7 BC. Note that the year 1925 is 1932 years from 7 BC. My father was born in 1925 and Dean Fagerstrom, who taught me this Divine Science of Numerical Correspondences was born in 1932.
My father was born on 19250122 and when you subract 98325 "The Run For The Roses" days from that date you will arrive at 16551108.
The year 1655 is ONE (1) conjoined with ONE (655) and 1655 = 331 prime X 5 which is the prime of Run (935) Chi (389) = 1324 = 331 prime X 4. Chi (389) is the Greek letter "X" which stands for "Christos" which is where the english "Christ" originated from, etc.
It was certainly no coincidence that the 131st Kentucky Derby was run in 2005. 131 is the prime of ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5 and 2005 factors into 401 prime X 5 which is the prime of Rosary (961197) = 401 prime X 2397
The 2009 edition of this historic race, the 135th, corresponded to the Sun (135) cycle. In fact Sun (135) days from today, 20090502, brings us to 9/14 (914) = 457 prime X 2 which is the 89th prime number.
Note also that the 50-1 odds corresponds to 501 and that the 501st day from/including 5/2/09 brings us to 20100914 which is the 9/14 (914) mo/day which corresponds to 457 prime X 2 which is the 89th prime number, etc.
Here's just one of many links to the story - click Yahoo News.
"LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (Reuters) – Mine That Bird, a 50-1 longshot ridden by Calvin Borel, drew away from the field in a dramatic stretch run to win the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs Saturday.
The Kentucky-bred bay gelding, bought as a yearling for just $9,500, left the field in his wake to record his first victory of the year in America's most prestigious race.
Pioneer of the Nile finished second and Musket Man third.
The winning time for the mile-and-a-quarter race over a sloppy Churchill Downs track was 2:02.66."
It's been a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 60's here in the Chicagoland area. I was driving back home with my two younger boys after watching our oldest son play the first game of a double-header, coaching our youngest in a baseball game and watching our middle son tie his game. The time was EXACTLY 5:14 pm CDT when they started to play "My Old Kentucky Home" as the horses running the Derby came out onto the muddy-rainy Churchill Downs track there in Louisville.
First, I knew something very special was going to happen for 5:14 pm corresponds to 5/14 which is always 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate. 89 is the prime of Leo (356) which is the astrological sign for the Divine Birthmonth, August, whose ruling planet is the Sun (135) and which corresponds to the Human Heart.
The race got underway 14 minutes later at EXACTLY 5:28 pm.
5:28 (518) = 66 X 8
66 is 23 "I Am" from 89 which is the prime of Leo (356) and the factor "8" was/is "Mine That Bird's" post # for the Derby.
Second, Mind That Bird finished the 1 1/4 course in EXACTLY 2:02:66 which mirrors the 2/02 (202) mo/day which is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from 2/02/09. 66/100th of a second (.66) is .23 (23) "I Am" from 1.00 second - ie. 66 is always 23 "I (9) Am (14)" from 89 "Prime of Leo (356)". Also 202 = 101 prime X 2 and 101 days prior to today brings us to 20090121 which was/is the end of the last 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" cycle that connects back to the birth of our Lord on August 11th in 6 BC - ie. 20090121 was the end of the 8267th cycle of 89 prime days - ie. 735763rd day - since 8/11 6 BC.
Let's take a closer look at the picture from above:
Notice the correspondence between horse/post # 8 and Race # 11 - 8, 11 which mirrors 8/11 (August 11th) and 811 which is the 142nd prime number and 8/11 is always 142 days from the end of each year.
Here's another important shot right at the finish line:
Notice tbe number "8" riding above "135". If we connect the two we get 8135 and 8135 days from today, 20090502, brings us to 20310810 which is the eve of the Divine Birthdate of our Lord God Jesus Christ. But, even more important is that the 8/10 (810) mo/day date factors into Sun (135) X 6 = 810. So this race, the finish and this picture is an incredible example of the perfection and order behind the Divine Providence of our Lord's design of the universe.
Mine That Bird was born on 20060510 which made him 723 days young on the day he won the 135th Kentucky Derby. 723 = 241 prime X 3. 241 days prior to today was/is 20080903 which was the 12th anniversary of my late Father's passing/ascension from this world in 1996. Mine That Bird was born 241 prime days from 20060911, the 5th anniversary of 9/11. Whenever you add 241 prime days to August 11th, the Divine Birthdate, you will arrive at - in non-leap years - April 9th which is the Glorification-Resurrection Day of our Lord God Jesus Christ's Divine Human on the morning of the 3rd day from his crucifixion on April 7th in 30 AD. The year 2009 is 1979 years from 30 AD. 1979 is the advent year of the New Jerusalem Age - actually on April 29th - according to the testimony of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) who appeared to Dean Fagerstrom to tell him on April 28, 1979.
According to Wikipedia:
"Calvin H. Borel (born November 7, 1966, in St. Martinville, Louisiana) is an American jockey in thoroughbred horse racing and rode the victorious mount in both the 2007 Kentucky Derby and 2009 Kentucky Derby. His latter win with Mine That Bird was the second biggest upset in Derby history, and Borel's winning margin of 6 3/4 lengths was the greatest in Derby history since Assault won by 8 lengths in 1946. On May 1, 2009, Borel won the Kentucky Oaks aboard favorite filly Rachel Alexandra, only the second time since 1993 that a jockey has won the Oaks-Derby combo."
Calvin's NA (Numerical Age) today is 15517 which factors into 263 prime X 59 prime. 263 days prior to today was/is August 12, 2008, ONE (1) day after the Divine Birthdate, August 11th. Calvin's birth, 11/07, was ONE (1) day before the Divine Conception Day of our Lord God Jesus Christ in womb of the most Blessed Virgin Mary in 7 BC.
When you add 98325 "Run For The Roses" days - see above - to Calvin's birth you will arrive at 22361121 which will be the eve of my late Father's 311th birthday.
I found it interesting to note that when you add 15517 days to 20080812 you will arrive at 20510205 which will be my 93rd birthday. Also, the 263rd day of each non-leap year brings us to 9/20 (920) which corresponds to God (764) Is (91) On (65) = 920 = 23 "I Am" X 40, etc. Plus, there are 3197 days separating Calvin's birth from my birth, 19580205, which factors into 23 "I Am" X 139 prime which corresponds to I (9) Am (14) Here (8595) = 8618 = 139 prime X 62, etc.
Now let's examine and break down "Mine That Bird" as follows:
Mine (4955) That (2812) Bird (2994) = 10761 = 211 prime X 51
211 prime days prior to today brings us to 20081003 which was/is 89 "Prime of Leo (356) days from 12/31/08, the end of last year.
20090502 - 10761 "Mine That Bird" days prior to the day I was born, 19580205, brings us to 19280820 + Leo (356) days = 19290811, the Divine Birthdate.
There's a very special follow-up to this special story which reached back to Barbaro, the 2006 winner of the Kentucky Derby as follows:
Note that Barbaro was also # 8 for post position # 8 as with Mine That Bird...
Mine That Bird's connections pay tribute to Barbaro
Kentucky Derby (G1) fans who visited Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum on the day after the 135th Run for the Roses got a surprise gift from the team behind MINE THAT BIRD (Birdstone), the 50-1 longshot that won the 1 1/4-mile classic on Saturday.
Trainer Chip Woolley Jr. suggested Sunday morning that the mantle of roses worn by Mine That Bird in the Kentucky Derby winner's circle be placed on the new sculpture of 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro located at Churchill Downs' Gate 1 entrance.
After consulting with co-owners Mark Allen with Double Eagle Ranch and Dr. Leonard Blach of Bueno Suerte Equine, the trio decided to give the nearly 400 "Freedom Roses" that make up the garland to Derby fans who were visiting the Barbaro Memorial and the Kentucky Derby Museum on the day after the race.
The garland had been stored in refrigeration overnight in the museum, and at noon (EDT) was briefly placed over the rail of the Barbaro sculpture in tribute to the ill-fated 2006 winner of the Kentucky Derby. The garland was then removed, and Woolley and Allen began handing out the roses, one-by-one, to fans visiting the museum and Churchill Downs.
"This is a tribute to a great horse," Woolley said. "I wanted everyone to have a little piece of the Derby. We wanted to give something back to the game.
Barbaro (April 29, 2003 – January 29, 2007) was an American thoroughbred that decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby, but shattered his leg two weeks later in the 2006 Preakness Stakes ending his racing career and eventually leading to his death. Read more.
Barbaro was born on the 24th anniversary of the New Jeruslem Age according to Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) as it was received and recorded by Dean Fagerstrom and he passed on the 319th anniversary of Swedenborg's birth in 1688.
Barbaro's numerical age (NA) was 1371 at the time he passed/ascended on 20070129.
1371 = 457 prime X 3
Which brings us full circle because Sun (135) days from 20090502, the date of the Sun (135th) Derby, brings us to the 9/14 (914) mo/day which is 457 prime from 1371 and 457 is the 89th prime number.
Now let's be sure to work in the "400 Freedom Roses" as follows:
400 Freedom (6955464) Roses (96151) = 7052015 = 38119 prime X 185
When we add 38119 "400 Freedom Roses" prime days to today, 20090503 - the day that these 400 roses were given away in honor of Barbaro's memory - we will arrive at 21130914 which is Sun (135) days from May 2nd, the 104th anniversary of Mine That Bird's stunning 50-1 odds upset win in the 135th Kentucky Derby.
And when we add 38119 "400 Freedom Roses" days to August 11th you will arrive at 12/22, the Leo (356th) Day of the year 104 years into the future - eg. 19580811 + 38119 prime days = 20621222 which is the Leo (356th) day of the year.
When you add 38119 "400 Freedom Roses" days to 20621222 you will come to 21670505 which is 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from 2/5, my 209th birthday.
So with all this Leonic energy flowing the punch line of all this is "Here Comes The Sun King" for "Mine That Bird" won the "Sun (135th) Derby"!!
