2012 Kentucky Derby Results: Undercard Races Underway At Churchill Downs

Update: Latest Derby results are here.

We're halfway through the day at Churchill Downs, and less than four hours away from post time at the Kentucky Derby. Seven of the races on the card are complete, with just three more until the 138th Run for the Roses. The main track is fairly sloppy after thunderstorms rolled through and canceled morning practices. However, the turf course is in good shape.

Atigun, who dropped down in class after failing to make the Derby, opened Derby Day just after 10:30 a.m. with a win in Race 1, as Politicallycorrect and Slamit finished second and third, respectively. Big Ring took home the second race of the morning, beating Vasten and Kingwood in the 6 furlongs dirt run. Skyring captured the third race, edging out the favorite Golden Ticket on the outside and Agent Di Nozzo, who crossed the line third.

Race 4 was off the turf, and Night Party finished with the win as The Program and Stay Put followed. It was the third win of the year for Night Party, who stole the race on the turn and cruised to win by two lengths. It was Macho Macho in the fifth race of the day, the favorite coming through against Thermal Cat and Mile High Magic.

The 5 furlong Twin Spires Turf Sprint was won by Great Attack, who raced through a tight group to win on the final stretch with a burst past Bridgetown, who lead for much of the race. Shackleford, who many predicted would win last year's Derby, came through with the win one year later in the Churchill Downs, beating Amazombie and Gantry.
