I'll Have Another Wins Kentucky Derby
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- I'll Have Another caught Bodemeister down the stretch and pulled away in the final furlong on Saturday to win the Kentucky Derby.

Jockey Mario Gutierrez, riding in his first Derby, guided the 3-year-old colt ahead of Bob Baffert's Bodemeister and a late closing Dullahan to win on a fast track.

It was trainer Doug O'Neill's first Derby victory. He had never finished better than 13th in the Kentucky Derby with two other horses.

I'll Have Another, the Santa Anita Derby winner, went off at 15-1 in one the deepest and evenly balanced fields in recent years.
