WATCH: Always Dreaming Runs Away at the End, Gives Pletcher His Second Derby Victory

Always Dreaming silenced Todd Pletcher’s haters today at Churchill Downs. What a performance from the Florida Derby champion.

Congrats to all you folks who bet on him. I wasn’t one of them, and now I’m drinking my sorrows away.

In the stretch I could tell Ax Man was starting to get tired,” Baffert said, “and I saw a horse coming and I said, ‘That’s me,’ so that was good….“He needed the whole stretch to get there,” Baffert said of Once On Whiskey. “I’m happy for the whole gang. I like what I saw from him today. Coming in I really thought Ax Man could do it, but on the turn, I could see them ganging up on him and he just didn’t respond. I have to give credit to Prat. I told him just to be patient with him.’’
