It was off to the races at Churchill Downs, Saturday, and Nyquist ran to perfection.
With jockey Mario Gutierrez at the reigns, Nyquist pulled away from Gun Runner down the stretch and then held off a closing charge by Exaggerator.
Off the tracks, fans had even more to cheer about, including their outfits.
(SOUNDBITE) JASON PIKE, SAYING:
“So I had to buy it when I saw it. It’s little horses in here.”
Wackier outfits are welcome too:
(SOUNDBITE) APRIL PAULEY, SAYING:
“Every year it gets bigger so I’ve taken all the big parts off the years before and just combined them all into one year.”
(SOUNDBITE) TV PERSONALITY, STAR JONES, SAYING:
“I love being at derby. It’s the one place where sports meets fashion and you get an opportunity to have the most exciting two minutes in the world.”
There will be more exciting minutes to come, the next leg of the Triple Crown heads to Baltimore for the Preakness Stakes on May 21.
