Ecovet Presents Mind Your Melon: Ride King Guillermo

There’s nothing like riding vicariously on a Derby contender… except actually riding one. 

It’s Derby Week, 2.0. To help you get into the spirit of things, take a virtual ride on Derby contender King Guillermo with this body cam footage.

King Guillermo caught handicappers’ attention with a speedy workout — five furlongs in 00:58.20. King Guillermo is owned by five-time Major League Baseball player Victor Martinez.

And you know these exercise riders always remember to mind their melons!

Mind Your Melon videos showcase equestrians who have decided to protect their noggins by wearing a helmet. Do you have a Mind Your Melon submission to share? Send it to [email protected].
