Medina Spirit won the 147th Kentucky Derby.
Trainer Bob Baffert picked up his seventh Derby win – the most wins by a trainer in the event.
More than 51,000 were in attendance for the event after the venue had no fans in the 2020 race because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Medina Spirit was bought for the minimum price of $1,000 when he was a yearling.
No one made a second bid.
Medina Spirit just went nearly wire to wire to win the Kentucky Derby.
