360i client Fasig-Tipton (see site above) celebrated victory when graduate Mine That Bird won the 2009 Kentucky Derby.
360i client Fasig-Tipton (see site above) enjoyed a big win this weekend when graduate Mine That Bird won the 2009 Kentucky Derby.

Lately, I’ve been writing about banner and Web site trends, as well as announcing creative awards we have won. Today is a little different. I’m honored to congratulate one of 360i’s clients on a win of their own. And it was a big win.

On Saturday, Mine That Bird, a graduate of 360i client Fasig-Tipton — North America’s oldest Thoroughbred auction house — won the 135th Kentucky Derby. The 50-to-1 long shot, brilliantly ridden by Calvin Borel, used the rail in a scintillating stretch run to complete a stunning last-to-first finish.

A graduate of Fasig-Tipton’s 2007 Kentucky Fall Yearlings sale — purchased for only $9,500 —  Mine That Bird is the second consecutive Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Yearlings sale graduate to capture the American classic, following last year’s victory by Big Brown. Mine That Bird is also the 17th Kentucky Derby winner to be sold by Fasig-Tipton.

360i recently redesigned the Fasig-Tipton site, as well as added “Fasig-Tipton TV” to allow prospective buyers to view horses and live sales. Visit to view our work and learn more about this year’s Derby champ.
