Calvin Borel aboard Super Saver won the 136th Kentucky Derby, earning an unprecedented third victory in four years and giving conditioner Todd Pletcher his first win in the Run for the Roses after 24 prior attempts.
On winning his third Kentucky Derby, Borel said, "It never gets old."
Pletcher, who had four starters in the race, was humble in victory.
"I'm no better trainer today than I was yesterday," he said.
For the win, Super Saver paid $18.00, $8.80 and $6.00. Ice Box paid $11.20 and $8.00 and Paddy O'Prado returned $7.40 to show.
