Golden Horn wins Epsom Derby

While we were getting ready for the Belmont Stakes, the second leg of the British Triple Crown was running at Epsom. Golden Horn came from 7th at mid stretch to win the Epsom Derby. Jack Hobbs was second and Storm The Stars was third. No surprise, all three are descendants of Northern Dancer.
