    2015 Kentucky Derby Results

    Three times before, Ahmed Zayat had to sit and watch as his horse came in second at the Kentucky Derby. But the fourth time was the charm for Zayat Stables as American Pharoah, the 5/2 pre-race favourite, took down the 141st Run for the Roses this past Saturday at Churchill Downs. American Pharoah broke well from Gate 15, kept up with the fairly moderate pace, and rallied late to beat Firing Line (12/1) by a length and Dortmund (3/1) by three lengths.

    While this was the first Kentucky Derby win for Zayat, jockey Victor Espinoza got to taste victory for the third time, having previously won aboard War Emblem in 2002 and California Chrome last year. Trainer Bob Baffert is now a four-time Derby winner; he also trained War Emblem, Silver Charm (1997) and Real Quiet (1998).

    Baffert had shared in Zayat's pain – Baffert was on hand when 4-1 pre-race favourites PioneeroftheNile (2009) and Bodemeister (2012) finished second. This year, Baffert had the Derby deck stacked with the favourite and the second favourite, training Dortmund for owner Kaleem Shah. Dortmund was the pacesetter on Saturday and did a fine job on a track that was getting slower as the day wore on. In the end, American Pharoah covered the 1 ¼ miles in 2:03.02 and posted a Beyer Speed Figure of 105.

    Frosted (15/1) closed from well behind to come in fourth place and complete a superfecta that paid out $1,268.20. Danzig Moon (30/1) was fifth, and Materiality (12/1), the expected pacesetter, finished sixth despite a poor start. Stanford, El Kabeir and International Star were all scratched from the race.
