Jimmy Fallon predicts Kentucky Derby with puppies

Thursday April 30th, 2015

The first event of horse racing's Triple Crown is coming up on Saturday and everyone is trying to find out who will take home the roses in the 2015 Kentucky Derby.

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has come up with an unscientific, but very adorable way to attempt to pick the winner of this year's race.

Fallon has previously used the system to pick Oregon and Michigan State to win the National Championships in football and basketball respectively, so the puppies are not infallible, but it is still worth watching them scramble to the finish line.

The prediction model may have a chance to beat its bad luck streak this time, as favorite American Pharoah took the race for Fallon.
