Puppies attempted to predict the winner of the 142nd Kentucky Derby on The Tonight Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday night.

Sixteen dogs named after the horses vying to win the competition on Saturday raced to a trough of kibble.

The canine representing the horse “Mor Spirit” was declared the winner after being the first to reach the food in a photo-finish.

This stunt is the latest sporting competition that puppies have been asked to predict on the show — from the Super Bowl to the NCAA Final Four.
