I have the video from NBC Sports which shows the running of the 138th Kentucky Derby. I’ll Have Another was the winner coming from behind defeating a gallant Bodemeister which went in front at the outset and tried to hold on, but tired at the end.
It was the first win for first-time Derby jockey Mario Gutierrez and also the first win for trainer Doug O’Neill. Great race and it shows why it’s called the Fastest Two Minutes in Sports.
Also a great call by Larry Collmus now in his second year in calling the Triple Crown for NBC Sports. Overall, a very good job by NBC with the exception of the celebrity interviews and having Jenna Wolfe on board.
It’s hoped that I’ll Have Another and Bodemeister will face off again at the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Raceway in Baltimore in two weeks.
Here’s the race as called by Larry Collmus.
NBC will air the Preakness Stakes, the second leg in horse racing’s Triple Crown on Saturday, May 19.
