Kentucky Derby day results 2016: Live coverage of Saturday's races at Churchill Downs

Follow along with us for a whole day of horse racing coverage leading up the 142nd Kentucky Derby.

The 142nd Kentucky Derby concluded on Saturday night with race-favorite Nyquist winning the Race of the Roses. After a strong start by Danzing Candy the favorite turned it on in during the stretch to win over Exaggerator, who posted a late challenge.

The start to Nyquist's career has been nothing short of remarkable after a perfect 8-for-8, including this Kentuck Derby. With Mario Gutierrez as his jockey and Doug O'Neill as his trainer -- a combo that won the 2012 Kentucky Derby with I'll Have Another, the possibility for a Triple Crown is in the card, however he's not unbeatable.

The undercard was full of exciting racing as well with Divisidero edging out World Approval to win the Grade I Woodford Reserve Turf Classic. Earlier in the afternoon Taris won the Grade I Humana Distaff.

Here is the full day's results from Churchill Downs.
