Always Dreaming won by a mile, showing some serious stamina to pull ahead of the field by so much on the muddy track at Churchill Downs.
He finished 2 3/4 lengths ahead of Lookin At Lee and 7 3/4 ahead of Battle of Midway. Classic Empire was fourth, Practical Joke fifth, Tapwrit sixth.
And some wonder why people go nuts for these races.
