Always Dreaming Always Wins: The Kentucky Derby

by on Friday, May 19th, 2017

For horse “Always Dreaming” and jockey, John Velazquez, winning the 2017 Kentucky Derby would be a dream come true. On Sunday, May 5, 2017, that dream became a reality when Always Dreaming clinched first-place in the 143d running of the fabled Derby, thrashing the second nearest competitor, Lookin At Lee, by two and one half lengths. The Kentucky Derby is the most prestigious event in horse racing. And, according to the Derby’s website, the first-place winner receives a $1,425,000.00 prize as well as the opportunity to compete in the internationally-renowned Triple Crown: the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes.

Always Dreaming ran an exceptionally composed race. Despite the wet track conditions, the horse was smooth out of the gate and navigated through the other 19 competitors with a steady and easy pace. As the race continued through the midway point, Irish War Cry, a top competitor, broke from the rear of the pack and challenged for the lead. Sensing that Irish War Cry was quickly approaching, Velazquez made the instinctive decision to push Always Dreaming into a higher gear.

Working in harmony with his jockey, Always Dreaming quickly outpaced Irish War Cry and overpowered the rest of the field. His graceful stride was a visage of both perfection and beauty. “This is the best horse…I have ever come to the Kentucky Derby with,” Velazquez said proudly after the race ended. Many feel that the horse had even more in reserve as he effortlessly crossed the finish line, entered the winner’s circle, and received roses; Velasquez stated that “Always Dreaming responded right away.”

A strong showing was not unexpected though. Anthony Bonomo, part of Always Dreaming’s ownership group, said that he was hoping for a win. “Where we come from, we knew only one thing, to try to win. In Brooklyn, that’s what it was about.” And the official Las Vegas odds reflected Bonomo’s sentiment. Always Dreaming was a strong favorite to win with 9-2 odds. At three years old, he will be one of the youngest horses to ever compete for the Triple Crown. The next race, in Baltimore on May 20th, is commonly known as the Preakness. The final race of the Triple Crown is the Belmont, held in Elmont, NY, on June 10th. Only twelve horses have won the Triple Crown, the most recent, American Pharoah in 2015.

As customary, this year’s Derby hosted many celebrities, wearing the loudest spring fashions. As always, The Derby was an upbeat and exciting race.
