California Chrome Wins the 140th Kentucky Derby

Dylan Buell/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) --  It was an all-around dominant performance for California Chrome in the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.

In front of 164,906, the second largest crowd in race history, California Chrome pulled away down the stretch and came away with the victory on Saturday.

They finished the 1 1/4 mile race in 2:03.66.

The 5-2 favorite stretched his winning streak to five with jockey Victor Espinoza at the helm.  Art Sherman became the oldest-winning Derby trainer at 77-years-old.

"It's been a long haul," Sherman said.  "I'm just the same old Art Sherman, except I won the Kentucky Derby."

Commanding Curve and Danza finished second and third, respectively.  Wicked Strong came in fourth.
