American Pharoah Wins Kentucky Derby 141

With a sweeping wide move, Victor Espinoza on favorite American Pharoah pulls narrowly ahead of Firing Line to win the 141st Kentucky Derby.  After three second places, the Ahmed Zayat family finally comes up roses.  It is the third Kentucky Derby for Espinoza and the second consecutive Derby victory for him after last year’s win on California Chrome.  Trainer Bob Baffert takes home his fourth Derby win after a drought of eleven years, this time with his wife and all of his sons at his side.  Congratulations to American Pharoah and all of his connections!
