I'll Have Another rallies to win Kentucky Derby
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) I'll Have Another ran down Bodemeister in the final furlong Saturday to win the Kentucky Derby, winding up in the winner's circle despite a rookie jockey, a more famous stable pony, and a price tag of just $11,000 as a yearling.
With Mario Gutierrez aboard, the chestnut colt stormed out of post No. 19 - the first winner from that slot in 138 runnings of the Derby - and bided his time back in mid-pack while Bodemeister set a blistering pace on a hot, muggy afternoon.
