Watch Always Dreaming win the 143rd Kentucky Derby
The sloppy strip added to the intrigue for the 143rd Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday.
But the mud was absolutely no issue for Always Dreaming, sent off as the 9-2 favorite in the 143rd Run for the Roses, and who did not disappoint.
Watch as jockey John Velazquez guides the son of Bodemeister to a 2 3/4-length victory over 33-1 shot Lookin At Lee and 40-1 long shot Battle of Midway.
