I'll Have Another overcame five of the fastest splits in Kentucky Derby history and made a late charge on the homestretch to claim victory at Churchill Downs on Saturday evening.

Ridden by jockey Mario Gutierrez in his first Run for the Roses, I'll Have Another was able to take the win after Bodemeister burst out of the gates and led all the way to the homestretch. 

Bodemeister held the lead at the first turn and was setting a fast pace. He opened up a length-and-a-half lead on the backstretch and continued to build on that lead, thanks to one of the fastest first five splits in the 138-year history of this great race.

That is when Bodemeister began to tire, though, and it wasn't long before I'll Have Another made his charge and took the lead. I'll Have Another comfortably and methodically made his way to the rail and held back around fifth for most of the race.

Entering the final turn, he began to slide outside, and that is when he made his charge. This was a clean and entertaining race. 

It was the first win from a horse at the Kentucky Derby starting in post 19.

Gutierrez was ecstatic, albeit out of breath, following the race.
