2007 Kentucky Derby Winner

Street Sense and Carl NafzgerSTREET SENSE WINS THE KENTUCKY DERBY
Street Sense roared from next-to-last in a 20-horse field to win the Kentucky Derby, putting trainer Carl Nafzger back in the winner’s circle 17 years after his first visit.

The colt broke two Derby jinxes to score the win under jockey Calvin Borel, who was 0-for-4 in the race.

Street Sense became the first Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner to return in the spring and win on the first Saturday in May, snapping an 0-for-23 skid. He was also the first 2-year-old champion to win the Derby since Spectacular Bid in 1979.

Nafzger wrapped his arm around 83-year-old owner James Tafel, then shook hands before pumping his left fist.

He wasn’t nearly as emotional as in 1990, when Unbridled won for 92-year-old Frances Genter, who needed Nafzger’s call of the race to follow her colt to the finish line.

“I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it. This is the toughest race in the world to win,” Nafzger said.

Street Sense is the third favorite in the past eight years to win the race.
