Barbaro (2003-2007)
Going into the Kentucky Derby, Barbaro was undefeated. He was sent off as the second choice of the betting public, at odds of 6:1, in a full field of twenty horses. Barbaro charged ahead during the last turn and straightaway of the race to win by six and a half lengths. Barbaro’s lead in the final furlong expanded, although jockey Edgar Prado did not use the whip and ask for his top speed. This margin of victory at the Kentucky Derby was the largest since 1946, when Triple Crown winner Assault took the “Run for the Roses” by eight lengths. Barbaro’s win made him only the sixth undefeated horse to win the Kentucky Derby.Barbaro had not competed for five weeks prior to the race, which was the longest layoff in 50 years for a Derby winner.
