2012 Kentucky Derby Results: I'll Have Another Begins Bid For Triple Crown

The 138th running of the Kentucky Derby is officially in the books, with I'll Have Another taking the victory, becoming the first horse to ever win from the No. 19 position. I'll Have Another was at 12-1 heading into the race, and was not as prominent in the pre-race previews as 9-2 favorite Union Rags and 5-1 Bodemeister.

The latter of which had the lead heading around the back stretch at a great pace, with Trinniberg and Hansen behind. As the final furlongs approached, I'll Have Another came 'round and bested Bodemeister by half a length to get the win.

Rousing Sermon and jockey Mike Smith finished No. 8 in the race, starting from No. 7. Rousing Sermon was born in Akron, Ohio and wasn't given "great" odds to win the race, with the latest odds listing the horse at 36-1, with the morning line at 50-1.

Rousing Sermon was 8 1/4 lengths behind the winner.
