Always Dreaming wins Kentucky Derby in the slop

Trainer Todd Pletcher

It's the second Kentucky Derby win for Pletcher, who also won the roses in 2010 with Super Saver.

McCraken (6-1) won his first four career starts. "For whatever reason, he was ready to run upon arrival".

And so another chapter was written into its 143 year history with Always Dreaming staying dry and clean to go all the way for Todd Pletcher and John Velazquez erasing some Derby demons for them.

"Out of the gate, we didn't have any trouble", Velazquez said.

"At the quarter pole, when I asked him, he kicked away", Velazquez said.

Kline explained that, after doing some research, she bet on horses McCracken and Lookin at Lee, among others.

"I'm trying to figure out how the hell I'm going to return all these?" I eased away from him.

Vinnie Viola, owner of the Florida Panthers, and Antony Bonomo, boyhood friends from the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn who spent some of their youths at nearby Aqueduct, are partners in the horse.

Mouni Roy created a rapport with Salman Khan during her appearance on the popular television show that Khan hosts " Bigg Boss ". Let's see if the rumours turn out to be true or it's just a dream hoping to be realised by Mouni's well wishers.

"Mr. Bonomo, Mr. Viola and all of us had talked about a game plan a long time ago back before we made a decision to run him in a maiden race in Tampa", Pletcher said. "Never fell out of love with the sport".

Three races are in the books leading up to the Kentucky Derby, where cold and wet weather has forced spectators to bundle up and use colorful hats for function rather than fashion at Churchill Downs. "I was a little anxious down the backside". I kind of live in Xanadu sometimes.

"I'm not sure we would have been able to do it without it", said Pletcher. Anthony Bonomo is the owner of Always Dreaming, and Todd Pletcher is the trainer.

â–ºMake it easy to keep up to date with more stories like this. However, since 2000, only three colts who have claimed that prize have gone on to win the Derby the following season. "I guess dreams do come true".

"How do you pick out a name, attach it to a horse and this happens". You know, it's - you can use the word "destiny", whatever you want to say.

To finish 20th is to finish last.

"He worked well all week and we were very happy with his progress". Battle of Midway, another unfancied entry at 40-1, was third, 7 3/4 lengths off the pace.

Classic Empire, last year's 2-year-old champion, was up for fourth. The trainer of Classic Empire, Mark Casse, was unhappy with the beginning of the race. "He got into the bridle really well on the backstretch". Our horse ran extremely well, considering.

As he had back then, he told Velazquez he would meet him in the winner's circle. On Saturday, he finished eighth.

"I thought he would win if they didn't press him early", Baffert texted. He made his move, and I got a little excited, but he didn't finish it off.

Problem was, his horse was nearly too good.

Irish War Cry, who like Always Dreaming was sent off at odds of 9-2, couldn't handle the sloppy going and ended 10th. His position in the starting gate aside, Irish War Cry was impressive earlier this season with wins in the Holy Bull and Wood Memorial races. "I've taken a lot of criticism". He steered Always Dreaming into an ideal trip behind pacesetter State of Honor, with mud flying in all directions on a track that resembled creamy peanut butter. They turned the winner's circle into rush hour on the NY subway.

"He didn't break well", Dr. Keith Latson, the Derby's on-call veterinarian, said. Once back there, Dr. Keith Latson said, Thunder Snow showed he could gallop "very comfortably". "Thunder Snow was allowed to walk back to the barn and he did so comfortably".

The fan favorite, Patch, who lost his left eye, finished 14th.

"We have had so much success in the past and we haven't won the Derby", said Velazquez.
