WinStar Farms Super Saver, under a perfect ground saving stalk and pounce ride by Calvin Borel, won the 136th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, giving Todd Pletcher his elusive first Derby trophy.
Todd Pletcher had been winless through his first 24 Derby starters prior to his triumph with Super Saver in 2010. Calvin Borel was winning the Derby for the third time in the last four years, and the three-year-old son of Maria's Mon completed his ten furlong journey in 2:04-2/5 and paid $18.
Ice Box rallied for the place and Paddy O'Prado finished third in the 20-horse field. Make Music For Me edged Noble's Promise out of 4th, and Lookin At Lucky, the 6-1 favorite, experienced early trouble and rallied to finish 6th.
Dublin was next under the wire in 7th and was followed by Stately Victor, Mission Impazible, Devil May Care, American Lion, Jackson Bend, Discreetly Mine, Dean's Kitten, Conveyance, Homeboykris, Sidney's Candy, Line of David, Awesome Act, and Backtalk.
