2008 Kentucky Derby: The winner is Big Brown

2008 Kentucky Derby: The winner is Big Brown The 2008 Kentucky Derby and the contenders reached the finish and the winner is Big Brown. The favorite from the very beginning, Big Brown managed to deliver a fantastic 4 3/4-length victory in the 134th Kentucky Derby, clearly justifying the confidence trainer Rick Dutrow Jr. had in him before the race. The winner of the 2008 Kentucky Derby, Big Brown was listed with odds to win the Run for the Roses at 3/1 at the online bookmaker BodogSports and 5/2 with the Churchill Downs odds makers. Big Brown, ridden by Kent Desormeaux, started from post No.20 and confidently gave the lead to Bob Black Jack and waited to power up until the final stretch to take the lead and bring the win home. Once again, the winner of the 2008 Kentucky Derby is Big Brown.

 Unfortunately, while Dutrow and team were celebrating the Kentucky Derby win, grave news came - the only filly in the race, Eight Belles, who finished second, collapsed right after the race and according to the officials at the track, she broke her two front ankles and was immediately euthanized. The official Kentucky Derby results are not out yet, but will be soon. We will post the results as soon as they are announced.
