I'll Have Another Wins Derby
LOUISVILLE, KY (The Spread) - The 2012 Kentucky Derby is officially in the books and pre-race long shot I'll Have Another edged out Bodemeister for a Churchill Downs victory.
Bodemeister and Trinniberg shot out of the gates quickly but Trinniberg eventually fell off. Bodemeister hit the stretch in the lead but I'll Have Another eventually worked his way from the middle of the pact and finished strong for the victory.
At the start of the week, Bodemeister and Union Rags were 7/2 favorites while I'll Have Another was 15/1. Union Rags was perhaps the most disapointing contender on Saturday, as he broke a step too slow out of the gates and then got caught in traffic early on. The knock on Union Rags coming into the race is that he doesn't have good burst so once he got into trouble early on, he was finished.
Getting back to I'll Have Another, he finished with a 1 1/2 victory over Bodemeister. Dullahan finished third at 1 3/4 lengths behind I'll Have Another, while Went The Day Well finished fourth at 2 1/2 lengths behind the winner.
