The fastest two minutes in sports couldn’t have gone any slower for UWindsor grad Paul Reddam (BA psychology 1976, honours 1977).
“I was just kind of numb through the whole race, and opened my eyes when it was over,” he said after his horse I’ll Have Another captured the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby and the $1 million winner’s share of the $2 million purse Saturday, May 5, at Churchill Downs in Lexington.
The route Reddam originally chose for his life was far removed from the excitement and risk of horse racing. After graduating from the University of Windsor with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, he left the city to study philosophy, eventually teaching the subject at the University of Southern California before beginning a career in finance.
