WATCH: American Pharoah Wins 2015 Kentucky Derby – FULL VIDEO!
American Pharaoh won the 2015 Kentucky Derby. The thoroughbred was the odds on favorite to win this year and managed to eke out a close win at the 141st running of the derby at Churchill Downs. See the video below!
It was a competitive run with Dortmund and Firing Line keeping American Pharaoh back until the final stretch of the race. As the race wore on American Pharaohs’ jockey, Victor Espinoza (seen wearing a teal and yellow jersey) was able to emerge from the pack, coming out victorious, as his horse was able to come up around the outside and charge ahead to the lead. This is the second year in a row Espinoza has won the Kentucky Derby. The race set an attendance record with approximately 170,517 Derby fans on hand to watch.
All eyes will be on American Pharaoh in the upcoming Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes to see if the horse can attain the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.
