Union Rags was the favorite to win the Kentucky Derby at 9/2.
When they were off and the race began, Union Rags fell to the back of the pack.
Trinniberg was off to a good start and led for a little while before Bodemaster took the early lead, racing steadily at about 35 MPH.
Bodemaster had the lead at the far turn, even leading by five lengths in the home stretch.
Then, out of nowhere, I’ll Have Another started gaining ground from the far outside.
100 yards away from the finish line, Bodemaster and I’ll Have Another were battling it out for the lead. But Bodemaster tired out and the horse named after a cookie obsession took the lead.
I’ll Have Another finished a length and a half ahead of Bodemaster and won the 138th run for the roses.
#19 I’ll Have Another (13-1)
#6 Bodemaster (6-1)
#5 Dullahan (11-1)
#13 Went the Day Well (28-1)
