I'll Have Another used the entire length of the Churchill Downs stretch to run down Bodemeister on the lead to win the 2012 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Bodemeister broke quickly from the gate and set very fast fractions, opened up by five lengths at the top of the stretch, but couldn't hold off I'll Have Another inside the final furlong.
I'll Have Another is a three-year-old son of Flower Alley out of an Arch mare (Arch's Gal Edity). He is trained by Doug O'Neill, ridden by Mario Gutierrez and owned by Reddam Racing. This is the first Kentucky Derby victory for both the trainer and jockey.
