Mystik Dan gained the one hundred and fiftieth Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday in a three-horse photograph end, edging out Sierra Leone and Eternally Younger for the upset victory.

Despatched off at 18-1 odds, Mystik Dan and jockey Brian Hernandez Jr. rode the rail down the stretch with a brief lead. Eternally Younger and Sierra Leone gave chase and pressured the chief to the wire in entrance of 156,710 spectators at Churchill Downs.
