Who won Kentucky Derby? Mage wins at Churchill Downs

Mage won the Kentucky Derby, surging late to beat out Two Phil’s in a photo finish at Churchill Downs.

He won with a time of 2:01 with jockey Javier Castellano and trainer Gustavo Delgado, who are both Venezuelan.

Saturday was the 149th running of the Kentucky Derby, but this year’s event was marred by the deaths of seven horses in the lead-up to the race.

Hours before the Derby, favorite Forte was scratched, becoming the fifth horse scratched from the race. That opened the door for the other contenders with the field down to 18 horses.
