Who gained the Kentucky Derby 2021? Full outcomes, goal order and highlights of the race

Medina Spirit caused a stir at the 2021 Kentucky Derby and held the lead for much of Saturday’s race en route to victory.

Bob Baffert, the coach for Medina Spirit (12-1), set a Kentucky Derby record with his seventh career win at Churchill Downs. Even he seemed baffled by the result during a post race interview.

“I just can’t believe it. It hasn’t sunk in yet,” said Baffert. “I love the record and all that, but it’s one of those things that I’m just so excited about because if you win it you never know if you’ll come back … I couldn’t be more proud of my team.”

“He doesn’t know how much it costs. What a little racehorse.”
