Giacomo Wins 131st Kentucky Derby


 Share

Recommended Posts

Long shot Giacomo did what his sire, Holy Bull, failed to do when he won the Kentucky Derby on Saturday in the second biggest upset in the 131-year history of America's most famous race.

"I've been telling this colt since the first time I got on him, before he ever ran, that he was going to redeem his father's name in the Kentucky Derby," jubilant winning jockey Mike Smith said.

Named for the rock star Sting's 9-year-old son, Giacomo was still 11th when the field turned for home, but barreled down the stretch to give Smith, at long last, his first Derby win on his 12th try.

Giacomo hadn't won a race since last October before finally coming through in the Derby.

Before the second-largest crowd in Derby history, Giacomo, a 50-1 shot, blew past 19 other entries and won the $2.4 million Derby by a half-length. :laugh:
