Pleasant Colony wins Kentucky Derby for confident trainer

Monday, May. 11, 1981 Pleasant Colony loped around Churchill Downs on Saturday in an unhurried 2 min. 2 sec. to come in first by three-quarters of a length, paying $9 to bettors with a win ticket. Woodchopper, a 35-to-1 shot, finished second, and Partez, at 7-to-1, came in third. Proud Appeal, the favorite, was out front briefly but finished 18th, behind Cure the Blues in 15th.
