Triple Crown | KY Derby Watch – Tampa Bay Derby

This was a full field of 12 three year old racehorses and one of the big outsiders in the field pulled the shocker.  Despite breaking outward some from the 11 hole, King Guillermo rushed up to get into good position around the first turn.  Showed nice rating ability to sit off the leader before taking over late in the race.  The son of Uncle Mo drew off to an impressive 4 3/4-length score under a jubilant Sammy Camacho.  The 49-1 longshot is owned by 5-time MLB baseball star Victor Martinez.

Favorite Sole Volante was too far back early and had to momentarily wait for room on the far turn.  The gelding stormed home late up the rail belatedly for 2nd.
