Look at the gematria of these horses, '59' is the kill number in Jewish Gematria, ' 38' is the number for death.
Kill = 59
Death = 38
The horse that won, Homeboykris, completed his 63rd race....
Again, if you sum one through sixty-three, it totals 2016.
It should be noted that Nyquist's top competitor is 'Exaggerator', having the same gematria.
Tying in with the 'Revelation and 'prophecy' angle, is the name Joe Torre, formerly of the Yankees, who was a part owner of Homeboykris. Prophecy = 106
It's entire possibly their horse was pumped up on a performance enhancing drug... RIP.
