The All-Time Top 5 Kentucky Derby Winners

Here, we’ll explore the top five Kentucky Derby winners of all time, taking into account their historical significance, record-breaking performances, and impact on the sport.

Secretariat (1973)

Secretariat’s legendary status in horse racing history is undeniable. Nicknamed “Big Red,” he captured the hearts of fans and cemented his place in history by winning the Triple Crown in 1973. His Kentucky Derby performance was nothing short of astounding. Secretariat finished the race in a record time of 1:59.40, a record that still stands today. His power, speed, and grace left an indelible mark on the sport, and his legacy continues to inspire future generations of horse racing enthusiasts.

American Pharoah (2015)

The racing world waited 37 long years for another Triple Crown winner after Affirmed achieved the feat in 1978. American Pharoah finally ended that drought in 2015, capturing the imagination of fans worldwide. Trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Victor Espinoza, American Pharoah’s incredible athleticism and determination led him to victory in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. His triumph rekindled the public’s interest in horse racing and solidified his place among the all-time greats.

Justify (2018)

Justify, another Triple Crown winner trained by Bob Baffert, boasted an unblemished record throughout his short but remarkable career. Jockey Mike Smith expertly guided the powerful colt to dominate the 2018 Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. Justify achieved these feats within 112 days, making him one of the most remarkable champions in the sport’s history. His meteoric rise and exceptional talent earned him a spot among the all-time greats.

Seattle Slew (1977)

Seattle Slew’s journey from humble beginnings to Triple Crown winner is a true Cinderella story. With a modest price tag of just $17,500, this dark bay colt defied expectations to become one of the greatest racehorses of all time. Seattle Slew triumphed in the 1977 Kentucky Derby and went on to win the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes, becoming the tenth Triple Crown winner. Seattle Slew’s rags-to-riches tale and electrifying performances on the racetrack make him an enduring icon of the sport.

Citation (1948)

Citation, the eighth Triple Crown winner, was a force to be reckoned with in the late 1940s. Trained by legendary horseman Ben A. Jones and ridden by jockey Eddie Arcaro, Citation was an imposing presence on the racetrack. After winning the Kentucky Derby in 1948, he went on to claim victory in both the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes, solidifying his status as one of the all-time greats. Citation’s dominance in his era and his lasting impact on the sport earn him a well-deserved spot on this list.

The Kentucky Derby has been graced by some of the most incredible equine athletes in history. These top five all-time winners – Secretariat, American Pharoah, Justify, Seattle Slew, and Citation – have left an indelible mark on the sport with their extraordinary accomplishments, unforgettable stories,
