Nyquist is the winner of the 142nd Kentucky Derby. The horse is now a perfect 8-0.

Exaggerator came in second and was unable to move past Nyquist for the fourth straight race. Gun Runner finished third in the race.

Nyquist entered the race as the favorite to win after an impressive victory at the Florida Derby. He defeated the favorite, Mohaymen, on his home track to emerge onto the horse racing scene.

The bigger stage at Churchill Downs did not impact Nyquist’s performance as he now starts his quest to stay in the running to win the Triple Crown at the Preakness. Nyquist stayed with the pack for most of the race, but turned on his speed towards the end to emerge as the winner.

While Mohaymen dropped in the odds, he was still one of the favorites to find redemption at Churhill Downs. Exaggerator, led by the Kent and Keith Desormeaux brotherly duo, was next in line by the oddsmakers to challenge Nyquist.
