More: Derby payouts are here.

After much anticipation and a day full of pageantry and hullabaloo, the 2012 Kentucky Derby was run on Saturday, culminated in the 138th winner at Churchill Downs. I'll Have Another took home the top prize with a thrilling last-second win. Bodemeister came in second. Dullahan took third place. I'll Have Another had 14-1 odds against at race time.

The morning line favorite on Saturday was Bodemeister, but Union Rags seemed to capture the imagination, or at least the attention, of most bettors and became the favorite to win as the day progressed.

The Run for the Roses now complete, speculation can turn to the other two legs of the Triple Crown. I'll Have Another will now attempt to win one of the most elusive championships in sports. I'll Have Another will go for wins in the Preakness and Belmont Stakes in an attempt to become the first horse to take all three wins since Affirmed took the Triple Crown back in 1978.
