The unofficial results from the 2012 Kentucky Derby have I'll Have Another as the winner. Bodemeister finished second, and Dullahan finished third in the 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday.

I'll Have Another faced long odds with the oddsmakers. The horse, ridden by jockey Mario Gutierrez, made bettors happy as the horse's morning line was set at 15-1. Owned by Doug O'Neill, this was everyone's first shot at glory at the Kentucky Derby and they took it.

Bodemeister led down the stretch and even had a five-length lead, but he was taken over in the final 200 yards. Dullahan finished third and favorite Union Rags was squeezed at the start. Caught in traffic, he never had a real chance at winning the race.
